MU Knightwatch

Luke Thomas

Hello! I’m Luke Thomas, I am the news editor for MU Knightwatch, and I am a senior  communications major. I am from a little farm-town in Central Illinois called “Watseka.” I grew up there with my Mom and Dad, two younger sisters and a whole slew of pets. Currently I work for Walmart because college doesn’t pay for itself and its an easy part-time job whenever I have to go home. I am also one of three editors for Knightwatch and this is my second semester with the group. I enjoy all types of music, video games, movies, I like to draw, and I love light beer. The main reason I joined Knightwatch is because I love the creative process. I thoroughly enjoy sitting down and figuring out how to put my own thoughts into a video or a paper. Editing my own work as well as that of my classmates is a hobby for me even if its required for a grade too. Self-expression is important, and I love being able to make my own original content and give it a forum to show it off. After college, I hope to do PR work. I haven’t nailed down exactly what I want to do or even where, but ideally I want to work somewhere that allows me to continue to produce original digital content. Long term, I want to move to Tennessee and live on the countryside. It also doesn’t hurt that I’d be in close proximity to the country music capital of the world.
