About me: philosophy / games / tennis

Derek is a 2019 graduate of Allegheny with a BA in Philosophy and a minor Political Science. While in college, Derek was a member of the Varsity Tennis Team, on the executive board of the Delta Tau Delta Fraternity, and vice president of the Philosophy Society. He actively participated in research during his four years at Allegheny and is passionate about research and studying ethics. In addition to his academic and extracurricular activities, Derek spent a semester abroad at Lancaster University in Lancashire, England, participated in an Experiential Learning Trip to Germany and Poland with professors and fellow students, and spent two summers on campus doing research with a professor.

Derek began working for the admissions team shortly after graduation. He developed a passion for the liberal arts experience through research and the relationships he fostered at Allegheny. Now he loves to help students discover their own passions for the liberal arts.

In his free time, Derek can be found reading, browsing the local bookstore, and hiking any of the various trails in the area. He also has a guilty pleasure for games like chess, Magic the Gathering, werewolf, and the Legend of Zelda.
