The Suffolk Journal

Ryan Arel
Vermont native Ryan Arel is a junior, a former Arts Editor and current Opinion Editor for The Suffolk Journal. A print journalism major and economics minor, Ryan aspires to become a versatile writer who can cover any story of any topic that is worth telling.

Passionate about sports, photography, and history, Ryan also hopes to write and research in a way that makes complex issues easier for readers, and himself, to understand.

After leaving Suffolk, he hopes to work in the media field and stay in Boston, but he does not duck away at the idea of maybe traveling someday for work. When he isn’t in the office, he can be found scream-typing homework assignments and stories, at the gym, watching "The Office" reruns or The Red Sox, his favorite sports team.
