Calvin College Chimes

Sam is a new on-call writer for Chimes and is from Grand Rapids, MI. She is a freshman majoring in Graphic Design and minoring in Business. When she’s not writing Chimes articles, you could probably find her drinking coffee in the Fish House, attempting to fill out her sorry excuse for a planner, or going on trips downtown with her friends. She enjoys connecting with other people both inside and out of the Calvin community and also never gets tired of eating ramen, Goldfish, or basically any other food at any time of the day (or night).
