ALEX COLE Communications and Social Media Intern Alex is a first-year journalism undergrad at Concordia University, who is actively participating in the university's co-op program. While he is not minoring in anything else, Alex is doing a specialization in multi-platform journalism, in order to gain the experience necessary to break into the competitive world of sports journalism. Alex is also the Sports Editor for The Concordian which is a Concordia University campus newspaper. He mostly covers hockey and football, but likes to dabble in soccer and basketball as well. He has started doing play by play for the Concordia men's and women's hockey teams, and plans to continue doing that next year. When he isn't reporting on collegiate sports, Alex can be found yelling angrily at his TV over hockey games, as well as playing video games and playing shinny hockey with his friends
