Braden Hajer, Copy Editor & Columnist

Braden’s a senior on staff, with this being his second year. He’s (unofficially) the paper’s resident Funnyman and Kanyeisseur. His main interests are music, politics, history and internet culture. Most of what he writes is surreal malarkey. He’s still a proud Bowser main in Smash Ultimate.
