Owen Collins '21
University of California, Irvine
I chose the University of California, Irvine because of the rigorous academics and the career and networking opportunities available at such a large and renowned research university. Millbrook science classes helped me define my interests and plan a course of study, and the required courses and electives gave me a chance to actually do science and to make my own observations and discoveries. I believe that my time at Millbrook instilled values that will help me to navigate and maximize my college experience.
Owen grew into an excellent leader over the course of his time at Millbrook. He jumped at every opportunity to strengthen our community during his year as a dorm leader and prefect. Owen was always a strong student, but he was also generous with his knowledge, always willing to help others understand. Millbrook will miss him, and I have no doubt that he will bring his unique style of care, effort, and humor to UC Irvine.
