Katelyn Beaty '06

communications, art history

As a Calvin student, Katelyn was a writer and editor for Chimes, the campus newspaper, and served as a cultural discerner in the Student Activities Office.

Where she is today:

Working as an editor at Christianity Today (CT) magazine. Katelyn manages the women’s blog her.meneutics and is the editorial director for the "This is Our City" project at CT.

One of her best experiences in The Calvin Honors Program:

Studying at Oxford University as part of the Scholars’ Semester in Oxford. “It was a challenging and enriching time of sharpening my research and argumentation skills within a community of like-minded peers from other top Christian colleges.”

“The Calvin Honors Program provided the perfect structure and guidance for exploring an intellectual curiosity that budded during my sophomore year. This curiosity about faith, learning and God's good world deeply informs my current work as a journalist who is asked to see the world and report back on it to other curious minds.”
