Riley Cook

Graduation Year



Philosophy major, German minor, Global and Community Health concentration.

Distance (miles) from your hometown to K

170 miles

Favorite spot to study

Innermost depths of the Library.

Favorite thing about the city of Kalamazoo

 We have some pretty great restaurants within walking distance (What can I say? I like to eat).

Favorite season in Michigan and why?

When we get back in September it’s so exciting to see everyone, and Michigan is gorgeous in the fall! Also, for a while it’s nice enough out that you can walk around and enjoy some hot cider without a hat and gloves. Best of both worlds.

Favorite piece of “K” gear

My black sweatshirt that says “Zoo.” It’s pretty mundane I guess. But oh so comfy.

Random thing you want to do this next year

At some point on study abroad, I’m hoping to interview German healthcare providers. That and go snowboarding in the alps.
