Derek Bullis, 31, is a second semester journalism major taking on the challenges of his new position as opinion editor for the Rampage. He is excited and eager to share the voices and ideas of the students on campus.

Before enrolling in college Derek served six years active duty in the United States Navy, serving time deployed overseas in the Middle East and European theaters of operation. He quickly proved himself to be a competent security team leader and tactician. “I loved what did for my old job but there was a jumping off point that I needed to pursue, and what inspired me to become a storyteller was the combat stories. Because war is such an extreme act, a lot can be learned from those who experience it.”  

Between school and work Derek is an avid adventurer, explorer, outdoorsman, and firearms enthusiast spending time pursuing outdoor sports such as hunting, fishing, rock climbing, snowboarding, scuba, and skydiving.

For those that lived through the attacks, the lights memorialize a skyline eternally scarred. For those born after, the lights are all that ever was. Photo courtesy of Flickr.
