Executive Board - 2015-2016

Kevin Heller

Executive Director

Hello! My name is Kevin Heller. I am a Senior Geology & Conservation Major and have been involved in COSO for 3 years. I am the Executive Director, and I am always looking for peers interested in changing the lives of commuters on campus. Go Flashes! 

Hannah Frederick

Assistant Director

Hi my name is Hannah Frederick. I am the Assistant Director for COSO. I am a junior biochemistry major, and I am from the Kent area originally. I commute mainly by walking or biking to campus. My favorite color is purple, and I love chocolate, tea, nature, reading, and Taylor Swift. I'm generally shy, but love to help people. My favorite place to study is the library at a really big table on the 7th floor. Commuter tip - bring a thermos with you to get really cheap coffee on campus (99 cents) or bring a tea bag with the thermos and they will give you free hot water. If you have any questions about commuting, campus, or need help with math or chemistry - feel free to stop in the office and ask. 

Brandon Holmes

Communications & Finance Director

My name is Brandon Holmes but everyone calls me Bholmes. I'm a senior in Computer Animation and I am the Director of Communications & Finance for COSO. I don't think my dog Hoops realizes he's actually a dog, he likes to pretend he's a human for some reason. I'm a really outgoing guy once we get talking and I like to let my work and creativity speak for me.

Adriana French 

Marketing Director

Hi everyone! I’m Adriana and I’m a freshman here at KSU. I got involved on campus early, which is one of the best things I could have done, you should too! I really enjoy sports, being outside and volunteering whenever I can! I love marketing events and seeing them come to life. COSO is a great way for students to feel connected to campus. Stop in and say hi if you have any questions!


Corey Thur

Director of Commuter & Off-Campus Concerns

I’m a senior Electronic Media Production major. In the future I hope to break in to the film industry. I enjoy a good bowl of mac and cheese and I’m a Harry Potter enthusiast. Go Flashes!
