Colleen hails from Oberlin, Ohio, but Wooster is really the place she calls home. She is a senior philosophy major interested in ethics, morality, education, law, and social services. In between co-presiding over k(no)w, singing in the Wooster Chorus, and catching up on Kant, Colleen likes to expand her portfolio and skills. If you need help, ice cream and school supplies typically does the trick.

I’m from Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam. I am thinking of double majors in Computer Science and Art Studio. My favorite place in the College of Wooster is Andrews Library, Art Center, and Old Main Cafe since they have the best cheesecakes in the world.
