Calvin University Chimes

Carolyn Muyskens
Carolyn is your local editor for the 2016–2017 school year. When in class, she studies language and people and how they’ve shaped one another throughout history — the disciplines formally known as linguistics and literature. Outside-of-class activities include eating (lots of it), sleeping (less so) and running (sporadically). Carolyn has the listening habits of a middle-aged man: mostly NPR and various selections from the dad-rock genre. She has never returned a library book on time, but for some reason Hekman Library still lets her work for them. She looks forward to connecting you to the Grand Rapids community through local news and perhaps beginning to puncture that “Calvin bubble” we’ve been known to inhabit.
