While earning a B.S. in Agricultural and Applied Economics, Collin earned a B.A. in Philosophy and a certificate in German. On campus, he volunteered with GUTS as a German tutor, completed an organizing internship with the Associated Students of Madison (ASM), and was appointed as a member of UW Hillel's student leadership delegation to Israel in 2018. His junior year, Collin served as a mentor for current ASM organizing interns and worked at the Wisconsin Alumni Research Foundation as an outreach intern. After his junior year, Collin worked as a legal intern for a city attorney in his hometown, Duluth, MN. In his final year at UW-Madison, Collin was selected for a Writing Fellowship with the UW Writing Center and worked with his peers to better their academic writing. Starting in May 2020, Collin will be working full time as a policy analyst at the Wisconsin Department of Health and is planning on attending law school in the next 1-2 years, with the aim of becoming a city attorney.
Personal Reflection
I'm grateful for the opportunity to work with the AAE faculty, who obviously care about preparing their undergraduates for the job market, and who've been some of the best teachers I've had at UW. I'm excited to continue applying the skills I've learned here in a new job and to make use of the study skills I learned at UW to keep learning new subjects of my own choosing, unrestrained by the need to fulfill breadth requirements for graduation.
Message to Fellow Graduates
Thank you, UW AAE!
