Megan Bauerle can’t pick a favorite.
The senior news-editorial student at the University of Nebraska – Lincoln, has a passion for both copy editing and graphic design. But it wasn’t always this way.
Bauerle came to the university in August 2009 from Imperial, Neb., a small town with the population of 2,001. Over the following four years, she changed her major an impressive four times.
“I went from art education to social science education to English education, English for one day and finally landed on news-editorial,” Bauerle said.
During her junior year, she interned at the University of Nebraska Press with the acquisitions editor of Bison Books. She has also worked at the Daily Nebraskan as a copy editor.
In the fall semester of her senior year, Bauerle was lucky enough to have press credentials from a class she was taking which allowed her to be on the sidelines during Husker football games.
In her spare time, Bauerle enjoys singing in her church choir, selling Mary Kay products as a consultant and watching some of her favorite movies, many of which she is able to quote.
“I can do full scenes from movies, it’s kind of weird,” Bauerle said.
Upon graduating this August, Bauerle has her fingers crossed to land a job as a page designer, but if not, copy editing is her back up.
“Page design fulfills my journalism side as well as my creative and artistic sides.”
