Arts & Entertainment Editor
Peter Keough is a senior Political Science major and French minor from Bridgewater, Massachusetts. He began writing for the Arts and Entertainment section of The Cowl during his junior year, and now co-edits A&E with two of his peers.
If he was forced to choose between the Arts or Entertainment, he would not, because he thinks that is a dumb ultimatum that he has no time for. He also wonders when such an ultimatum would even be applicable.
When not writing or editing in The Cowl‘s office, Peter can be found with headphones in or a record playing. As long as his eardrums are being fed music, they will be happy with him. He also DJs for the school radio station, 91.3 WDOM, as well as serves as a member of the Student Advisory Board for Mental Health and Wellness. Peter encourages any and all Cowl readers to follow him on Spotify. Please. He’s begging you.
