Alumni Spotlights Zoe Watts Class of 2022 EDUCATION Bachelor of Arts, Connecticut College (expected in 2026) WHAT HAS YOUR FIRST YEAR AWAY FROM DE LA SALLE BEEN LIKE?

I do not like anything about Freedom Center, the Chicago Tribune’s printing plant along the Chicago River. I do not like its expanse of blank brown brick walls. Nor its little lines of arched windows. I don’t even like its name, “Freedom Center,” dripping with the sham patriotism that the Tribune’s long-ago editor and publisher, Col. Robert McCormick, slathered over his particular brand of cornfed xenophobia. But then, I am not Horace Nowell. “I wish it could be saved,” said the 26-year-old. Don’t bet on that, though you might be able to place bets there someday. Last month, casino owner Bally’s bought the building and its 30-acre site near Chicago Avenue and Halsted Street, for $200 million, with plans to build a $1.7 billion casino complex there. Bally’s…
