2014 Udall Scholar

Huge congratulations to Drexel’s 2014 Udall Scholar, Collin Cavote!

 

Alex BenjaminCollin (Biomimicry, BS '15, Honors) spent 5 years away from college exploring North America to better understand what sustainability means for business. He came to Drexel because of the Custom Design Major, which allows him to study biology, chemistry, design, and entrepreneurship (mentor: Shivanthi Anandan). Collin also hoped to launch a company as a student that would create environmental and social value. Now as a Close School of Entrepreneurship Co-op, Collin has the opportunity to grow his company, Biome. The company's mission is to purify air and has applications for climate change and indoor air quality.
