As a Former Employee of Jodi Kelly

I was an office assistant in the Matteo Ricci College from January 2015 to June 2016—17 months to be exact—and I was completed blindsided by the events that transpired last spring.

Last Saturday, the Spectator participated in Seattle University’s branch of Relay […]

I Was Protested

I was at Uncle Ike’s last Wednesday, April 20. As protestors surrounded the building, hands clasped and voices loud, I wasn’t among them.
