Gabrielle Abdelmessih, Campus Editor

Gabrielle Abdelmessih is the campus editor of  The Oakland Post. She is a junior majoring in biomedical Sciences and minoring in journalism. One might not think that those two subject areas have much in common, but in Abdelmessih's view, they both share a reliance on verifiable truth, a passion for discovering the unknown, and a goal to improve the human experience.

With a love of science and writing, Abdelmessih began writing for the post, first as a contributor, then as a staff reporter in the winter of 2021. During the summer of 2021, she was selected to be campus editor.

As campus editor, Abdelmessih writes one story per week and leads a group of reporters.

She is also a columnist for The Post, starting the newspaper's first public health column, "A Grizzly's Guide to a Healthier Y(OU)," that is dedicated to discussing health topics and how they relate to college students.

From writing a review of the hit television show "Bridgerton" to covering Covid-19 vaccine distribution on campus, Abdelmessih considers her time thus far at The Post as a unique and gratifying learning process. She looks forward to continuing her roles as campus editor and columnist in the year ahead and to making The Oakland Post the best that it can be for the Oakland University community.

Abdelmessih is a member of the OU Honors College as well as president and co-founder of the Health Disparities Awareness Club at Oakland University. Her career aspirations are to become a physician and medical news correspondent. 

She is an avid reader, skier, and very amateur chef who enjoys traveling and spending time with her dogs.
