John Phillips

Fellowship Chair

Harvard University Class of 2026

A.B. Candidate in Economics and Government

John Phillips is a sophomore in Eliot House. He grew up in Chicago, Illinois and now lives in Charlotte, North Carolina. Although his Catholic faith and big family are the most important things in his life, playing and watching sports are a very close third. When John is not playing Harvard Club Soccer or Eliot Intramurals, he’s watching any sporting event he can find (especially Harvard and ACC teams). John’s favorite quote is “the glory of God is a human being fully alive,” and he hopes to help all people at Harvard experience this.
