Weekly Current Student Highlight

Hello, my name is Sophia! I remember everyone telling me how much fun college is. They were so right. My name is Sophia Quick and I am currently in my second year here at Colorado College. Before coming to CC, I was dedicated to playing hockey in college. I spent two years playing Junior Women’s Hockey in Boston, MA before I decided my senior year of high school that I wanted that college experience. Colorado College seemed like the perfect fit, and it’s a bonus being close to my home in Denver. Now, instead of having practice and lift every day, I get to be a part of great clubs and take advantages of several opportunities. This year I am an RA, play for the men’s club hockey team, and have joined the new Women in Business club. You can definitely say this year is off to a great start!

Weekly Recent Graduate Highlight

My name is Alan, and I'm a former RA of Mathias and Slocum (though I was raised in Loomis). I graduated in 2016 with a double major in Economics and Computer Science. These days I'm working at Lockheed Martin as a Systems Administrator. As a Systems Administrator, my job is basically to care for and automate the infrastructure of a Linux/Unix domain, and support the engineers of Space Systems (who are building cool rockets and satellites). It's a pretty fun job if you're into computers/tech. When I'm not working, I enjoy running (literally) around Colorado, hanging out with friends, and enjoy checking out all the beautiful sites Colorado has to offer. In particular, I just recently ran my first marathon in Fort Collins and climbed my first fourteener (mount Quandary). In short, life after CC has been pretty good, and I'm excited for the many other adventures on the horizon! I wish you all the best of luck in your adventures!
