Costa leads a nine-person editorial team. A Louisiana native, Costa is majoring kinesiology and minoring in human nutrition.
To date, the publication’s local reporting focuses on the area crime rate and the opening of the LSU Military Museum. It also published an opinion piece on cancel culture.
The Soapbox also has an Instagram account. One picture shows the entire team completing a student journalism training with the Leadership Institute prior to the publication’s launch.
The Leadership Institute is the parent organization of Campus Reform.
