colton lottes, treasurer

Hometown: Loogootee, IN

Junior in Animal Science with minors in Crop Science and Farm Management

I heard about about ULu through Beta Sigma Psi. When I went to church for the first time, I immediately felt like I was at home and felt very included and welcomed. I wanted to become involved because I thought that my experiences as treasurer would help me to understand how to keep proper books, write payroll checks, pay bills, and gain an insight into how taxes were taken care of.

A few of my hobbies include hunting, fishing, tennis, and spending lots of time with my friends.
