The Orion

Danielle Kessler
Danielle has been part of the Arts and Entertainment team for three semesters and has really fallen in love with the craft of entertainment-style writing. A Journalism-News major minoring in cinema studies, she’s always had an interest in film. Her favorite movie is “Almost Famous” from which she learned to be “honest and unmerciful” in her writing. She enjoys writing reviews of movies, plays, musicals and drag shows as well as watching movies and tweeting in her spare time.
