Editors In Chief: Maggie Christianson and Charlotte Rodewald

Hey Everyone! I’m Maggie Christianson, one of your fearless editors of the Crux. This is my Sophomore year at Clarke so I’ll be graduating here hopeIMG_9390.JPGfully with a BFA in Graphic Design and a minor in CIS. I got involved in the Crux last year as a freshman, just wanting to write fun pieces every now and again. A lot of my stuff you’ll find on here spans from DIYs to reviews and to videos. Thanks to actively being a member and submitting work often, I found myself on the staff this year. I’m super pumped to help the Crux grow into something spectacular. If you want to reach out to me with questions, comments or concerns, feel free to email me at



Hello! My name is Charlotte Rodewald


I am one of the co-editors of the Crux Newspaper along with Maggie Christianson.

I am a senior here at Clarke University, Graphic Design major, BFA, with a minor in English. I am also part of the Scholars program (basically a National Honors Society), an officer in the Dungeons and Dragons club (head of marketing), a staff member of the Tenth Muse, and a member of the Literature Club.

I started in the Crux Spring semester of 2019 as contributing staff, writing articles once per week, and I became editor Fall 2019, still writing articles but now with added leadership responsibilities such as recruitment, editing articles, organizing what we post when, and any other communications with faculty and staff.



Web Developer and Designer: Dane Shaull

Hey there! My name is Dane Shaull, and I’m the Web Designer and Developer for the CRUX!


I am currently a senior Computer information Systems (CIS) major and Masic Composition minor, and the President of the Dungeons and Dragons Club. I started working for the CRUX last year, and my job is to keep the website fresh, while also write articles every once in a while. You’ll mostly see articles about movies from me, whether it’ll be a movie review, or a top 10 list of a certain genre.
