Karyn Lacey

Karyn Lacey

Hi! My name is Karyn Lacey. I am a second-year graduate student in the College of Communication studying Journalism.

I reside in Calumet City, Illinois. For my undergrad, I attended Western Illinois University (August 2010-December 2014) in Macomb, IL, where I received my bachelor’s degree in Journalism. In the time of my gap year, I worked as an After School Matters Instructor at IMPACT Family Center, a non-for-profit organization. Although I will always be a Leatherneck for life, becoming a Blue Demon has changed my life for the better, as well myself as an individual. Coming to DePaul University to further my career in journalism, is one of the best decisions I have ever made. The faculty, here at DePaul, will make sure you have the skills and mindset needed to thrive in this field.

If I’m not watching the news, I am hanging out with my friends or watching reruns of HBO’s The Newsroom and Game of Thrones. Please ask me anything! I am here to help!
