The Dispatch

Jake Brien
Hi there! My name is Jake Brien and I'm a senior this year. I write commentaries for the Dispatch, and I'm really excited for all of the great stuff we've got planned for our readers this year. As far as outside of the newsroom, I'm the co-president of the Philosophers' Club here at Bowie. I love to hike, play guitar, listen to Michael Jackson, and write for Quora whenever I get the chance. I hope you love reading the Dispatch as much as I love writing for it!
