Calvin University Chimes

Sam Ballast
Sam Ballast is the layout editor for the Chimes. She is a junior from Grand Rapids majoring in graphic design and minoring in business. Along with writing and design, she enjoys photography and dance. Using her slight caffeine addiction, passion for design and business and writing/editing skills, Sam hopes to get into the marketing field after graduation next year. For now, she will be using those skills editing for Chimes this year. She has been a staff reporter for the past two years and is very excited to see what this new role and new school year will bring.
