About Us

Serving thousands of readers biweekly via a print edition and online at www.ucsdguardian.org, the Guardian is the University of California at San Diego’s award-winning independent student newspaper, published by UCSD students for the UCSD community. We publish Mondays and Thursdays during the regular academic year, with the exception of summer session, University holidays, and final examinations. The Guardian is a student-run organization independently funded by advertising sales.

Morgan Jong

Morgan Jong is a third year Communication student, who surprisingly aspires to become a journalist. As a former member of the UCSD Soccer team, Morgan feels incomplete without a pair of yoga pants and a half zip. She is all about that #fitlife, so trying to tempt her with chips and soda usually won’t work. If you’re curious about what a 75 percent Hispanic, 25 percent Asian goddess looks like, you won’t find her on Facebook, but you might find her serving salads and pizzas with a smile at Foodworx in Sixth College.

Sydney Reck @sydneyreck

Sydney Reck is a first-year Physiology & Neuroscience major and Literature/Writing minor from Revelle who doesn’t quite know what she wants to do with the rest of her life. But she does know that she loves dogs, has terrible eyesight, wants to earn a Master’s degree in Biology, and does not want to go to medical school. She also believes in the Oxford comma. Her experience includes nine years of analytical writing, eight years of professional vocal performance, and a working knowledge of biomedical data segmentation.

Soumya Kurnool @skurnool13

Associate Features Editor Soumya Kurnool is a freshman from Revelle College who studies Biotechnology and hopes to minor in French Literature. She is passionate about translational oncology research that bridges the gap between the lab and the clinic, and she currently works at the UCSD Moores Cancer Center. Soumya also loves Indian classical music and is an active member of UCSD’s Society for the Promotion of Indian Classical Music And Culture Amongst Youth (SPICMACAY).

Vincent Pham @vietboiphoeva

Vincent Pham is a political science major from Eleanor Roosevelt College. When he’s not holed up in the Guardian office or working at his internship, the ambitious second year enjoys scurrying around La Jolla taste testing various local cuisines, as befitting his position at the paper, and planning get-togethers with his fellow undergrads. He is currently the proud captain of the excellent IM Kickball team Adele, which plays every Sunday at 5 p.m., is chronically deficient of female players and recently scored a point. Go Adele!

Teddi Faller

Teddi Faller is a junior in Revelle College studying History, particularly modern European history. She calls Portland, Oregon her home and lives up to her hipster stereotype by being a vegan majoring in an impractical field to get a degree that she might not even use. When she’s not reading 200 pages about the Soviet Union during the Khrushchev period, she’s re-watching her same “Friends” and “Sex and the City” DVDs.

Council columnist. @aleksandrasks Advertising Director | asechrest@ucsdguardian.org Audrey Sechrest Business Manager | emku@mail.ucsd.edu Emily Ku Editorial Assistants Emily Bender, Rosina Garcia, Shelby Newallis, Jonah Yonker Page Layout Lauren Koa, Amber Shroyer Copy Readers Clara Chao, Waverly Tseng Webmaster Joseph Le     Contact Us Every Monday and Thursday, for 60 issues per year, the Guardian‘s print and online issues connect you directly with 27,500 students and thousands of faculty and staff.
