Meet Our Editors

Mia Levine, Co-Editor in Chief


Mia is a junior at Clark and embraces the role of Co-Editor in Chief after being on the Scarlet for 3 years. Mia is double majoring in Sociology and Political Science (with a subfield in American Government and Public Policy). Besides splitting her time between class and writing for The Scarlet (most notably the WAP article), Mia is the treasurer for Clark University Film Screening Society, the Secretary for Pre-Law Society, a Peer Mentor, and a member of Model United Nations. Outside of school (and when she gets a moment to breathe), she loves talking about New York City (even though she is from Long Island) and about her poodle, Briscoe.

Matt Rushford, Co-Editor in Chief


Matt is entering his third year writing for the Scarlet, and his first as the co-editor in chief. A history major, Matt enjoys the simple things in life, such as hiking, birdwatching, and listening to music. When he tries to be less boring, you can see Matt around campus having a good time, at Clark University Film and Screening Society (CUFSS) as the Director of Membership Retention explaining why watching the movie “Surf’s Up” is an inalienable right.
