The Kingsman has been a student-run newspaper on Brooklyn College since 1950. In it’s time, it has served as the eyes and ears of Brooklyn College, winning awards and raising awareness from larger New York publications, such as the New York times. Topics from on-campus events to New York politics are covered in the weekly issues. Papers are distributed every Wednesday morning at the entrance of every building at Brooklyn College. All students are encouraged to reach out to any of the following editors and start writing for The Kingsman.
Meet the Editors:
Quiara Vasquez, Editor-in-Chief
Quiara Vasquez is a TV/Radio major who’s been an editor at The Kingsman since 2016. She’s perhaps most famous on-campus for her incisive arts criticism, which netted her the Brooklyn College Journalism Program Award for Feature Writing; but her writing for campus publications has covered everything from Christian evangelism to the Coney Island boardwalk to racial bias in CUNY admissions. She lives in South Brooklyn with her mother and several spiders.

Samantha Castro, Layout Editor
Samantha Castro is double majoring in Film Production and Journalism. She’s currently layout editor for The Kingsman. Her interest in journalism dates back to high school when she was forced to take the class. After covering events of her interest and writing about them, it became fun.

Allison Rapp, Managing Digital Editor
Allison Rapp is a sophomore Journalism student, and has been writing for The Kingsman since January.
