Jackson Link

Jackson is a sophomore psychology major at Westminster College. Having been raised locally, Jack takes for granted the fact that the “greatest snow on earth” is not more than 30 minutes away and spends much of his time slaying dragons and embarking on galactic adventures via internet. He is very excited for the day when lavish capes become the cornerstone of everyday fashion.

Jack has however been known to dabble in activities that are in direct sunlight. He enjoys the solitude of being outdoors with hobbies such as skiing or photography. Sometimes the introvert will attend a concert or festival, it is not genre based, he just appreciates the atmosphere.

He has held interest in graphic design for some time now and is looking forward to being responsible for the image of the Forum.

Emily Senkosky

Emily Senkosky is a recent transfer student from Colorado State University, and but has found a home away from home at Westminster. Emily loves to romp around in nature. Hiking, rock climbing, kayaking and skiing powder are a few of her favorite things and loves how accessible all of those activities are in Utah.  Currently, Emily is majoring in communication, but is looking to design her own environmental journalism major. As a part of eco-team, Emily has been able to find and link up with people who are like minded and enjoy everything that Westminster has to offer in the environmental department. Also, by interning in the communication department at several non-profits, Emily has been given the capability to really promote sustainability to the best of her abilities. She is a ski instructor at Snowbird and also works at the desk in the Giovale library, so if you find yourself in either of those places come and say hi- Emily is known for her gift of gab and loves meeting new people.

Smythe Eddy

Smythe came to Westminster three years ago from Maine and is currently a junior communication major with a focus in journalism and graphic design. When she’s not editing papers and designing documents for class, she enjoys listening to bluegrass and taking advantage of Utah’s outdoor playground by escaping to the mountains to ski, hike or rock climb. Music is a passion of hers as she grew up playing the violin and after recently acquiring a mandolin, she hopes to add that to her repertoire. Smythe was a staff reporter for The Forum in the fall of 2013 and will now start her first semester on the editing team. Her post graduation plans consist of traveling abroad and gaining more experience in her field before eventually settling down to a full time position.
