Arts + Sciences Seoul, South Korea
Hometown: Philadelphia, PA

Hello! My name is Kasey Cooper, and I am a senior at Ursinus College.  I am double majoring in Mathematics and Biology with a minor in East Asian Studies. I am currently studying abroad at Yonsei University (연세대학교) in Seoul, South Korea.

During my time in college, I have been involved in many organizations on campus including Japan Club, Heart and Seoul (Korean Culture Club), Mathematical Association of America, Biology Club, and Toy-Like-Me (a service club) to name a few. I am also involved in mathematical and biological research on campus, which I hope to continue pursuing in graduate school. Ideally, I would like to become a professor who can share her love for learning with students and encourage them to pursue their own passions.

In my free time, I love to be outside and care for my pets including goats, chickens, ducks, rabbits, cats, birds, fish, a dog, and a turtle. I also enjoy listening to all kinds of music. My ideal Friday evening is wearing comfy pajamas and curling up in bed with a warm cup of tea and reading a fun book.

Thank you for your time and have a great day!
