In May 2020, he will graduate with a Master of Architecture and a Bachelor in Business. While attending Drury, Colin had the opportunity to study abroad in Greece for a semester and was a member of Drury’s mentorship program.

Colin has been to 25 different countries and lived in Honduras for a year where he volunteered/ taught at a community foundation.
