Dyan Larson-Harsch, Editor-in-Chief. A member of the Carletonian since the beginning of his freshman year, Dylan’s favorite thing about the paper is the opportunity to release the best possible issue each week, with honest and insightful reporting. Dylan is a junior English major with a prospective concentration in Women’s and Gender Studies. Originally from Milwaukee, Wisconsin, Dylan is also involved in the cross country team and two other campus publications: the literary magazine Manuscript and the feminist zine Infemous. When he wants to take a break, Dylan’s favorite spot to nap on campus is 3rd Libe, on the long couches below the stairwell. Contact him at

Brynne Diggins, Editor-in-Chief. Working on the Carletonian staff since fall term freshman year, junior Brynne has edited, written articles in almost every section, and served on the social media committee. This Minnesota native-- from Minnetonka-- is an English major with possible concentrations in Women and Gender Studies and Educational Studies. When not working on the paper, Brynne also tutors, creates content for the feminist publication Infemous, works at the on-campus writing center and both dances and choreographs for the student-run company Synchrony II. When asked about her fashion style, she tends to wear the “50% thought out, 50% this is what just happened to jump on my body this morning” aesthetic. Contact her at

She began writing for the newspaper her freshman year, started editing the news section her sophomore year, and currently leads the paper feedback committee.

Matt Thibodeau, Features & Arts Editor. Matt is a senior from Duluth, Minnesota. A double major in International Relations and French/Francophone Studies, Matt started writing for the Carletonian during the winter of 2016. His favorite things about the paper include the inclusivity of the staff and the wide range of topics covered. When he is not writing for the newspaper, he works on Budget Committee, nordic skis, and hosts a radio show on KRLX. Matt claims that “there is honestly no living equivalent to Missy Elliott,” so this favorite song from the 90s is her song “Sock It 2 Me.” Contact him at

Ellie Grabowski, Viewpoint Editor. A junior from Baltimore, Maryland, Ellie is an English major. She has been working for the Carletonian  for just over a year, starting in winter term of her freshmen year. Her favorite part of the newspaper is getting to read and write both news articles and opinions from all across campus. When she is not working on the paper, Ellie is involved in the campus publications Manuscript and Writers’ Circle and dances in Synchrony II. If she were any kitchen utensil, Ellie says she would be a cookie cutter. Contact her at

Avery Naughton, Viewpoint Editor. A senior History major, Avery has worked for the Carletonian since her freshman year, beginning as Viewpoint editor her second term on the paper. In addition to editing her section, she recently joined the paper feedback committee. When she is not working for the student newspaper, Avery volunteers at both the middle school and the local Humane Society and works for the on-campus Writing Center. This San Diego, California native describes her fashion style as “pretty much anything that people don’t typically wear at Carleton,” such as lipstick, dresses, or heeled boots. Contact her at

Originally from Woodbury, Minnesota, Lizzy began writing for the Carletonian during the fall of her freshman year, and she served as editor of the arts section for two terms before serving as editor-in-chief for four terms during her sophomore and junior years.

A senior History major and American Music concentrator, she also teaches folk dance on campus, leads admissions tours, and works as an education fellow for the CCCE.

Annika Martensson, Staff Writer. Annika, a junior Spanish major from Milwaukee, Wisconsin, has served on the paper since her fall term freshman year.
