Hello! My name is Henry Freese, and I am a senior here at Indiana University South Bend. This is my first semester working at “The Preface” campus newspaper here at Indiana University South Bend. I am working towards obtaining my bachelor’s degree in Mass Communication, with a concentration in Journalism, as well as obtaining a minor in History.

I hope to obtain my bachelor’s degree in Mass Communication, with a concentration in Journalism, and possibly obtain a Master’s degree in Sports Journalism, as well, in the possibly near future. I hope to either one day write for a newspaper sports section, or become a sports play-by-play broadcaster, hopefully one day in Major League Baseball.

I have a personal “bucket list” goal of mine to one day ride my bicycle to all thirty Major League Baseball stadiums in North America.

Another one of my activities which I do less frequently than riding my bicycle, but still greatly enjoy, is going sailing on my dad’s friend’s sailboat, which we take sailing across Lake Michigan twice a year, from Chicago, Ill. to Michigan City, Ind., and vice versa. I have been sailing on and off on that sailboat, since I was about five or six years old, which has been a lot of fun, as well as being pretty scary at times as well, when the weather took a turn for the worse.

I graduated from New Prairie High School, located in New Carlisle, Ind., on June 7, 2015. I also have a twin sister, named Sarah Freese, who is one minute older than I am. I was born on April 17, 1996, in Duluth, Minn.

I have extended family living in Texas, Minnesota, Nebraska, Illinois, Wisconsin, Georgia, Florida and Iowa. I have lived most of my life in Rolling Prairie, Ind., but have also lived in Duluth, Minn., Atlanta, Ga., and Chesterton, Ind.

I am a huge Chicago Cubs and Minnesota Twins Major League Baseball Team fan, as well as being a Major League Baseball fan in general. I also really just enjoy going for long bicycle rides in my free time, as I really enjoy getting outside and exploring places around where I live, as well as being more active outside in my free time. I also really enjoy going kayaking.

The things that I hope to accomplish with my time here at “The Preface” is for me to cover a wide variety of story types, and to help provide valuable information about campus events, and other useful information to the campus. I am really looking forward to working at “The Preface” this semester!
