Colton was inspired by his own RA to become one. 2.)He likes going to Marshall sporting events in his spare time, despite the outcome of the games. 3.) Colton loves the Patriots, Red Sox, and the Celtics. His dream is to someday move to Boston and pursue his journalism career there.

If you are interested in programming for either of these LLC floors please contact RA Colton Jeffries or RA Luke Hamm for more information
