Hello! My name is Caroline and I am a junior studying Environmental and Sustainability Sciences and minoring in Climate Change. Growing up in southern Maine, I found my love for the outdoors at an early age. Some of my fondest childhood memories include paddling off the coast of Maine and exploring the local hiking trails with my four dogs. Now, I can be found volunteering at the Farmers Market at Cornell or working on my plant identification skills in the botanical gardens when I am not in class. At COE I wear many hats- I am a Wizard, backpacking instructor, skiing instructor, paddling instructor, and now one of the student representatives! As a student rep I have a few goals. First and foremost, I will continue to work with the board to make COE classes financially accessible for students. Additionally, I would like to revive the mentoring program offered by the board and host events to strengthen the COE instructor community. Finally, I want to get to know more of the COE community. So, if you see me in basementland or on campus, stop me and say hi! I am always excited to hear new ideas or how your COE class is going this semester. COE has been incredibly important to me during my time at Cornell and I am thrilled to be a student representative this year.

I am a senior studying Psychology and minoring in Spanish and Human Development! I'm mainly from Colorado Springs, Colorado, though I have lived many other places too. Outside of class, I enjoy zooming around on my bike, climbing, knitting, and doing crosswords. I've guided three lovely Outdoor Odyssey trips, and was lucky to be on Odyssey E-board the past two years. Within COE I have a great time Wizarding, teaching rock, land, and trail running courses, and being silly in Basementland. I am honored to be student representative, and I hope to serve COE well. In my time as student rep I look forward to building on the work of previous student reps to strengthen the COE community and make courses more financially accessible – our classes can be so empowering and generally awesome that everyone who wants to should be able to participate. Additionally, I am excited to unite COE through excursions across program areas and more opportunities for community connection. This fall I am teaching Trail Running and having a blast!
