Carter Coudriet is a member of the Class of ‘18 involved in The Daily Pennsylvanian, Penn’s independent student newspaper. During the summer after sophomore year, Coudriet worked as an intern with Forbes on the Top College project team. Along with four other student interns, he helped construct the package for Forbes’ annual college rankings, including profiles of all 660 schools, related articles and social media. He also managed his own Forbes contributor blog, focusing on the business of beliefs in college. The summer before sophomore year, Coudriet was one of six students awarded the DP’s Neiman Scholarship, which earned him a six-week internship with The Daily News in New York City. For The Daily News, Carter worked as a breaking-news intern for the city desk, covering stories including an NYPD shootout, a murder, and the U.S. women’s soccer team’s World Cup victory parade. With the DP, he has covered national stories including the Pope’s visit to Philadelphia, the New Hampshire primary and the protests in Center City following the Darren Wilson’s lack of indictment. He currently serves as the Digital Director of The Daily Pennsylvanian and is a member of the company’s Board of Directors. He has also served as the media organization’s Creative Director, Video Producer and Associate Sports Editor. He believes that involvement in student media is "crucial to truly understanding the complex parts of the Penn experience that often stay behind the scenes.” Outside of the DP, Coudriet is involved in Sigma Nu fraternity, the Student Committee on Undergraduate Education and work-study in the College Office.
