Michael Xu joined War News Radio in the beginning of 2008. He enjoys liberal arts at Swarthmore and does not want to have a major yet.

He wants to be involved with War News Radio as long as he gets enough sleep at Swarthmore and his first story was about an English school in the Kurdish region of Iraq. He wants to make personal connections with Iraqis and Afghans and hopes to visit both countries someday.

Besides War News Radio, he sings with the international Tri-Co a capella group Chaverim, teaches Chinese at a local elementary school, checks books out at McCabe library and commutes on the Mary Lyon shuttle.
