Supporting comments: "As a tour guide, panelist and intern in the Admissions Office, Collin's contributions have been invaluable. Collin leads by example, with compassion and through encouragement. Those skills have served him well while he has held offices in DCGA, IFC, and Lambda Chi Alpha fraternity. All of these organizations have grown in positive directions under his leadership as have the younger members of the organizations. Collin has earned the respect of his peers, administrators, and faculty at Denison. Perhaps the greatest impact of Collin's leadership has been the strides he has made in improving the stereotypical image of the Greek male at Denison. Both through IFC and Lambda Chi, Collin has worked tirelessly to improve that image, and he has made a real difference. He has helped our community see fraternity life as a venue for community service, philanthropy and positive brotherhood. Most commendable in his leadership style is the priority he places on relationships. Collin isn't a leader that you like because he's a nice guy, but because he is genuine and truly engages in strong relationships with those whom he leads and those who advise him."
