2013 winner loving college College has been an exciting adjustment for Daniel Pippen, but he never lost momentum from the academic success he had at North Augusta High School. With a 3.77 GPA, the 2013 Best and Brightest winner made the Deans List during his freshman year at the University of Michigan, where he is majoring in chemical engineering. He’s also active in Young Life, American Institute of Chemical Engineers and the hall council for his dorm, and he has traveled to Dominican Republic on a mission trip. “College has been amazing,” he said. “It’s been a great experience so far.”

Pippen said he enjoys attending football games and was even caught on ESPN’s Fan Cam during Michigan’s game against Notre Dame. His new friends who still laugh at his Southern accent never get tired of hearing him talk, he said. Besides adjusting to rigorous college courses and living on his own, he also had to learn to brave the harsh Michigan winter and “get used to wearing snow boots.” “College really just gives you a new perspective on life,” he said. “You meet all types of people that are out there, and I just love it.” – Tracey McManus, staff writer
