The Rubicon

Riley Wheaton
Senior Riley Wheaton is in his fourth year at SPA and is deeply involved in theater, film club, several choirs, debate, and student political organizations. He’s a mentor and an occasional tutor.  He was elected class representative to the Discipline Committee for his sophomore year and then elected Chair of the committee for junior and senior years.  Riley listens to books without pause on the audible app and naps in his free time.  This is Riley’s first year collaborating with The Rubicon as a Columnist, though he’s done some guest writing in previous years for DC or Film Club.
