Lauren Carroll

Hi there,

I'm Lauren, and I graduated from Duke in 2014 with a degree in political science, though it's more accurate to say I majored in The Chronicle. I encourage anyone who is interested in learning more about Duke, writing, photography, critical thinking, time management, or working on a team, to join The Chronicle. I learned more as part of that organization than I did in any class.

I'm now a staff writer for PolitiFact, a nonpartisan journalism outfit that fact-checks things politicians say. If you have any questions about Duke, Chronicle, Baldwin, being a professional journalist, living in Washington, DC, or if you just want to have a good chat about the 2016 election, please email me at lcarroll@politifact.com.
