C. Spencer Colpitts Jr. of Milford, Mass., an economics major who won one of four Student Achievement Awards for his outstanding work with University programming. Colpitts helped develop Man2Man, a living and learning community on campus dedicated to helping first-year male students transition to college and consider issues of "positive masculinity" and respect for others through bi-weekly group meetings, mentoring and social programs. Colpitts discusses Man2Man (18 seconds, :06-:24), positive masculinity (19 seconds, :33-:52) , what he's learned about problem-solving at Fairfield (24 seconds, 1:02-1:26) and Sen.
