The Orion

Julian Mendoza
Hey there! I see you stumbled across my staff profile! Well if you want to learn a bit about me read on!


I’m originally from the Bay Area, I came to Chico State to pursue my dream of becoming an investigative journalist. This is my fourth semester on The Orion. I’ve done some freelance work at a small paper called the San Leandro Times, was an election stringer for the Associated Press on Super Tuesday and am currently the multimedia editor of The Orion this semester.


When I am not busy dealing with The Orion or school, you can find me playing video games or doing some form of cardio. Follow me on Twitter for Chico State news @JulianMTheOrion or check out my website!
