Peer Academic Leader (PAL) Profile

Katelynn Kolterman is very excited to be the Peer Academic Leader (PAL) for the Business Living Learning Community (LLC). Katelynn is a senior, majoring in International Business with a minor in Spanish. She spent the last two semesters studying abroad in San Sebastian, Spain, and travelled Europe for the summer. She enjoys music, reading, Netflix, and learning new things. The thing she misses most about Spain is living five minutes from the beach. Last summer, she did an internship with College Works Painting and learned how to run her own business. Katelynn thinks everyone should join an LLC because her LLC experience gave her the opportunity to tour Koch Industries as a freshman and be able to make great memories with other students in her field.
