Our Mission. 

Sideline is the official online student publication of CNU CHS. Our platform showcases the diverse voices and talents of CHS’s students, faculty, and staff. We strive to unify and create connections amongst our CHS community by reporting on-campus events, student opinions, and so much more. The Sideline team of editors and contributors work to advance the art of communication and shed light on topics that impact student life at CHS and beyond through prose and multimedia projects.

Hello everyone! My name is David Park, and I’m very excited to be the Co-Lead Editor for Sideline as a third year in the 3+4 premed pathway. During my past years in Sideline, I have helped develop the website and managerial aspects of the club. I write content for the club sometimes, and when I do, I touch on my interests in Brazilian Jiu Jitsu, going to the gym, bass fishing, or playing tennis.

Faculty Advisor


My first degrees are in literature, and I got my start in academia teaching English at the high school and college levels in the U.S. and Mexico. While pursuing my doctorate, I served as Managing Editor for Techné: Journal for the Society of Philosophy and Technology (https://www.spt.org/techne/). As a contributor, I have been a member of the Social Epistemology Review and Reply Collective (www.social-epistemology.com) since its inception and have had the opportunity to collaborate with scholars/writers from a variety of disciplines. As Faculty Advisor of CHS Sideline since we began in 2017, I have had the opportunity to work alongside a growing group of dedicated students. From this group of contributors, I continue to learn a great deal about writing, video, and audio production in a digital age.

Hello everyone! My name is Amy Chan, and I transferred into the traditional pathway after spending a year and a half as a dual enrolled student. Aside from academics, I enjoy going on hikes, crocheting, and practicing yoga to preserve my flexibility as a former rhythmic gymnast. I’m also an avid baker, and it’s always fun for me to share treats with my friends and family!
