UNL news-editorial major Kelly Morris is a Dave Matthews fan.

“I am borderline obsessed with Dave,” Morris said.

Morris’ dream came true in 2010. She wrote an article on Matthew’s lyrics which was published in “The Odyssey” a student newspaper that reports on the Greek system.

“So when my cousin met him a couple of years ago and read him my article I couldn’t stop smiling for a week,” Morris said.

Morris currently has a paid internship with She manages the website which promotes downtown area events.

When Morris graduates this August she hopes to find a job writing feature stories. Her ultimate goal is to work for Rolling Stone Magazine.

“The Rolling Stone mixes my two favorite things, writing and music.” Morris said, “Right now that’s my idea of a perfect job.”
