Calvin University Chimes

Juliana Knot
Juliana Knot is the editor-in-chief of Chimes this year. She is studying math, philosophy and German and is from the south suburbs of Chicago. Her hope for this year is that the upperclassman student who asked her sister “What’s Chimes?” will learn the answer. As always, send tips, criticisms, post-grad ideas and zucchini recipes to jjk42.
