Johnson, of Benson, Minn., will be in his senior year next year. He's studying marketing and human resources. Johnson loves to travel (although he claims he never really goes anywhere) and has run two marathons throughout his life. His two favorite foods are ice cream and cookies - by a long stretch.
During his college career, Johnson has been able to study abroad in Argentina. He is unbelievably pumped to be taking tumbling and gymnastics this coming fall, and is so excited for Homecoming to get started!
Phan is a junior double majoring in accounting and management information systems. Although he was born in St. Paul, at the age of one he moved to Germany, where he stayed for 14 years of his life - which is why he has such an awesome German accent.
Phan is a proud member of Sigma Pi and the Greek Community at large. When he's not busy with school or work, he shares his passion for Minnesota with prospective students, parents, and distinguished alumni through the Carlson Ambassador program. He is also a co-founder and board member of the Undergraduate Consulting Club, as well as a consultant in the Carlson Venture Enterprises. Phan loves to travel, and has one big passion in life: food!
