While at UC Davis
Ryan P. Fuller was the Editor-in-Chief of The California Aggie during the 2004-2005 school period. He worked for The Aggie from September 2001 until graduating Spring quarter 2005. He had a weekly column about media for two quarters, but he stopped writing it at the end of Winter Quarter 2005. He is a Dixon native.
Some of Fuller's major accomplishments while Editor-in-Chief include: a revamp of the interface of the Aggie's website, giving it a more blog-like aesthetic; creation of the California Aggie Editors' Award (website dead, but archived), a $1000 scholarship for incoming Freshmen interested in Journalism; and the California Aggie Newspaper Alumni Network, a "keep in touch" site for former California Aggie employees (now defunct).
Fuller also was responsible for the creation of the separate position of Opinion Editor. The Opinion Editor was responsible for some of the duties previously reserved for the Editor-in-Chief, such as managing "Letters to the Editor," working with the opinion columnists, and helping to write editorials. The position was filled by soon-to-be Editor-in-Chief Daniel Stone. Many felt the creation of this position, along with other factors, contributed to a more distant Editor-in-Chief. The position of Opinion Editor was removed the following year when Daniel Stone assumed the position of Editor-in-Chief.
