Nick is a junior from California and is a double major in history and English. Nick looks forward to doing an honors thesis on the poetry of Robert Burns during his senior year at Wheaton. He is a member of men's rugby and the Roosevelt Institute, and he occasionally writes for the Wheaton Wire. In addition to being a CPA, Nick is a campus tour guide. Very glad to be a Career Peer Advisor, he says, "The Kollett Center helped me out last year with getting an internship in radio in Palm Springs; I accessed funding for that. I think that it's a great opportunity for anybody to just come in and at least apply for funding... it gives people opportunities that they might not otherwise have access to."
