About Seth:

Hello everyone, my name is Seth. I was born and raised in Korea, and my family moved to Los Angeles when I was in high school. After serving in the Army as a Petroleum Specialist/ Battalion Commander’s Assistant, I started attending Onondaga Community College. A number of veterans supported my transition from the military to college, and I want to do the same for other veterans. As a first-generation immigrant and first-generation college student, I am particularly passionate about helping veterans with Asian or immigrant background. 

Academically, I’m studying International and Public Affairs at Brown University. At Brown, I’m serving on the student veteran society as the Vice President of Programming and a member of the student working group called Leadership Development Initiative. Moreover, I’m the founder of Dunder Mifflin College (DMC) and the Regional Manager of DMC Brown University Branch. I strongly believe that it is DMC Brown University Branch’s responsibility to share the joy we gained from The Office with the world. 

Outside the classroom, I spend most time training for my next triathlon race; I’m a huge cardio nerd. The Green Bay Packers has another special place in my heart, and as a Los Angeles resident, I support the Lakers.
