As The Observer approaches its 40-year anniversary, it is only right to take a deep dive into the dusty halls of the archives to explore some of the best-written headlines in Observer history. From poorly concealed sex jokes to complaints about the Fordham Lincoln Center elevators, these headlines don’t just show how Fordham has changed. More than anything, they show all the ways in which Fordham has stayed the same.
Emily Ellis (she/her), FCLC ’23, is a former online editor at The Observer. At Fordham, she is studying English and sociology with a concentration in creative writing. She currently works as an orientation coordinator with the Office of Student Involvement at Fordham Univeristy. On any given day, you can find her drinking coffee with her friends and writing romance stories about werewolves.
Stevie Cortez, Fordham College at Lincoln Center ’21, is majoring in political science and minoring in philosophy and journalism. She writes for opinions and features, focusing on international politics and the perspective of the American working class. Stevie hopes to one day work as a foreign correspondent.
Clara Gerlach, FCLC ’22, is the opinions editor for The Observer. As an economics major with a minor in German, she enjoys reading anything and everything. When she hasn’t got her nose in a book, Clara enjoys hiking, experimenting with gluten-free recipes and making way too specific Spotify playlists.
