My most recent article for The Daily Free Press

Read my coverage of the final day of James “Whitey” Bulger’s sentencing, subject of much media attention.

James ‘Whitey’ Bulger sentenced to 2 life sentences in prison

This was fascinating to cover and I feel privileged to have had the opportunity.

“The testimony of human suffering that you and your associates inflicted on others was at times agonizing to hear and painful to watch,” she [Judge Denise Casper] said. “At times during the trial, we were watching a movie and what we were hearing wasn’t real … we were hearing about the real, inhumane things humans did to other humans, seemingly without remorse and without regret.”


Hi! Thanks for checking out my website.

My name is Margaret Waterman and I’m a junior studying journalism at Boston University. I was born and raised in Concord, Mass. I graduated from Concord Carlisle High School in 2011 and will graduate from BU in 2015.

I recently retired from my post as the Campus Editor of The Daily Free Press, Boston University’s independent student newspaper. Skilled at reporting, editing and AP style, I’m eager to continue my education as a journalism student. Here, you’ll find my website, which features a collection of some of my favorite print clips and some other journalistic works. Feel free to click around and see what I’ve been up to at BU and in Boston.

In addition to my academic pursuits, I love skiing and played collegiate field hockey at an NCAA Division 3 school for one year before transferring to BU. I also love reading and writing, as well as watching movies and writing film reviews. Lastly, I love to travel and hope to spend more time abroad in the coming years — I’m set to move to London for a semester on Jan. 10!
