You may have seen him around campus before. Perhaps he’s taken your order at Summit, or maybe you applauded as he took a bow after his performance in last month’s What You Will. But have you ever taken the time to get to know the man behind the bar? If not, you’re in luck: Her Campus has got you covered. Without further ado, we present to you a truly one-of-a-kind guy: Colin Bye.

What are your international experiences? I was born in the States, but I moved around a lot from Singapore to Germany to England because of my dad’s job. I went to high school in the UK near London, and my parents just moved to NYC with my little sister. My dad’s American my mom’s Austrian, and all of my family is in Austria. It’s the one place in my life that hasn’t changed.

Our sources tell us you have a bae. So who is this Sarah? She is the most important person in my life. There’s a lot of things I can say. A lot of it cheesy, because I have those tendencies. She helps me see the world through my own eyes. She helps me develop my ideas, explore my values, and genuinely try to help the world in any way that I can as humbly as I can.

Where do you want to live when you’re a grown up in the great wide world? Theres no specific place I want to live, I’d like to stay travelling, keep experiencing new things. The place I want to go the most is New Zealand.

You heard it here first: Though Colin is hanging around Davidson for now, our man has an itching to keep trekking around the globe. He may already have a bae, but he always has room for more friends. So quick, before it’s too late—Say hello to Colin Bye!
