Calvin University Chimes

Katherine Benedict
Katherine “Katie” Benedict is a junior who is excited to be serving as a Campus and Community Co-Editor this year. She is majoring in international relations, with minors in environmental studies and writing. Katherine has lived in Seattle, San Diego, and the Ann Arbor area, but Grand Rapids is now her hometown. This is Katherine’s third year at Chimes, where she is firmly on Team Oxford Comma. Her favorite places on campus are the fifth floor of the library (which she misses already), the nature preserve, and anywhere that you can put up a hammock.
