Ithaca College Publications Board Names Aidan Quigley ’18 2017–18 Ithacan Editor in Chief

The Ithaca College Board of Student Publications has selected junior Aidan Quigley ’18 as the 2017–18 editor in chief of The Ithacan. Quigley was appointed to the position by Diane Gayeski, dean of the Roy H. Park School of Communications, at the conclusion of the board’s annual meeting and candidate interview session on April 3. 
Quigley is a journalism major and politics minor from Trumbull, Connecticut, who has previously served as a reporter, assistant news editor, news editor and managing editor for the paper over the past three years. A Park Scholar, he is spending the Spring 2017 semester studying in Washington, D.C., where he is also interning as a breaking news intern at Politico. He has previously interned a reporter at the Westbury (Conn.) Republican-American and as a Rapid Response Team intern at the Christian Science Monitor in Boston. This summer he will intern at Newsweek in New York City.
Among his stated goals for The Ithacan are the enhancement of the paper’s digital-first online strategies and increased collaboration with other Park School student media. He will officially assume the editor in chief position on May 4.
