Meet The Editors!

Oriana Gonzalez


I first became involved with the New University in January 2018, when I became an intern for the opinion section, and I’ve been working with the newspaper ever since. My experience at the New University is one of the most memorable in my college career, and I’m very excited to see what the future is going to bring to this newspaper!

I became a staff member of the New University at the start of winter quarter of my first year (around January 2018).

Reporting and writing gives me the opportunity to give back to the community in a tangible and meaningful way.

The New University is a community bonded by creativity and expression, and it’s been an honor to work alongside such a passionate and dedicated news team.

Running the Arts & Entertainment section has given me the opportunity to be inspired by all forms of creative expression here on campus, from plays to concerts to poetry!

Henry Curi

Sports Editor

I am a fourth year journalism major focusing on all things sports. I started off with the New U as an intern back in my third year and worked up to taking a lead role by becoming the sports editor for the organization. I cover all athletics and follow the university’s success in Division 1 competition, keeping students and the general audience up to date with the Anteater’s trial for glory. I have traveled to San Jose, CA to cover the men’s basketball team’s games for March Madness, reporting on their first tournament win in school history. Along with that, I constantly produce content that allows the audience to see that UCI athletics is going up the ranks and should be considered as teams to beat on the national level.

Christina Reyes

Sports Editor

This upcoming school year, 2019-2020, will be my first year as a member of the new University and as one of the editors for the sports section. I take tremendous pride in being able to cover a section of student life that I find dear to my heart, being an athlete myself (UCI Women’s Water polo). I am now entering my third year at UCI as a double major in English and Literary Journalism while also pursuing my long lived dreams of being a collegiate athlete, therefore, one can assume one of my top priorities this year is to cover as many sports events on campus as possible.
