Meet the Editors



Hello everyone! My name is Danielle Schipani and I am the Editor-in-Chief at the student run newspaper The Outlook. I am a senior communication student focusing my studies in public relations and journalism and minoring in interactive media. I have been with The Outlook for three years now. Being an editor has helped me improve my writing, interviewing, and communication skills. It has also given me the chance to collaborate with others in a newsroom. The Outlook has become my on campus family and I encourage anyone who is interested to give writing for the newspaper a chance! It feels great to have your work published. Stop by the office at any time or feel free to send me an email at s0927658@monmouth.edu!


Managing Editor/News Editor

Hey! My name is Jamilah McMillan and I am the Managing Editor/News Editor for The Outlook. I am majoring in Political Science, and double minoring in Journalism and Graphic Design. Currently I am shuffling my way into a bittersweet senior year, and I have been writing for The Outlook since my freshman year. I can't remember why I joined, but eventually The Outlook became a significant part of my weekly grind. It has helped me grow as a human being, and a writer. I love The Outlook, and all of the beautiful people that make each issue possible. If you are interested in joining do not hesitate to stop me on my way to class, work, or club meetings, and if you're feeling conventional email me at s0887230@monmouth.edu. We also have an open door policy so stop by the newsroom (in Plangere) anytime, you'll probably find me editing late into the evening on Monday and Tuesdays!

Co-Opinion Editor

My name is Lauren Niesz and I am Co-Editor for Opinion. I am currently a senior English major at Monmouth with a double minor in Sociology and Information Technology. I’ve been writing and copyediting with The Outlook for about two years now and I love every single minute of it! I started small and worked my way up in The Outlook—and I think that is the best way to get involved in things. Come in and just try out some copyediting or send us some articles. Everyone at The Outlook is so welcoming and we always need more writers and copyeditors! If you ever have any questions or want to learn more about writing for Opinion (which is super fun and easy!) just shoot me an email: s0908003@monmouth.edu.

Viewpoints Editor

Hi everyone! My name is Amanda Drennan and this is my second year at The Outlook. I am a senior here at Monmouth, majoring in communication with a focus in journalism and public relations. I put together the viewpoints section, which is focused on the students at Monmouth. If you're interested in being featured in our viewpoints section, please contact me at s0954441@monmouth.edu or visit the office Mondays or Tuesdays.


Sports Editor

Hi everyone! My name is John Sorce. I am a senior communication major with a concentration in journalism/public relations and a minor in sports communication. This is my second year at Monmouth and my first as the Sports Editor after transferring from Brookdale. I wrote for their student newspaper for five semesters and was also Sports Editor for the spring 2015 semester. Simply put, baseball is my life. I hope to become a beat writer for the Kansas City Royals one day, or be working for them in some capacity. But as long I am covering baseball for a living, that will be fine with me. I have already been to 20 of the 30 current stadiums in Major League Baseball, and I will hopefully get to all 30 one day. Last year I covered the football, men’s basketball and baseball teams and wrote a feature on Baltimore Orioles pitcher and former Hawk Brad Brach for The Outlook, and I am excited to see what my senior year has in store! You can contact me at s0892138@monmouth.edu.

I have been working for The Outlook since my freshman year, and I have had an amazing experience. I have learned so many new things and met so many great people. Along with managing the advertisements, I sometimes create the ads for my clients using Adobe Photoshop and Adobe Illustrator. I learned my graphic design skills by taking digital media and design classes for two years at Marlboro High School. If you would like to contact me, my personal e-mail is s0903509@monmouth.edu and my advertising e-mail is outlookads@monmouth.edu!
