Hello adventurers! I’m Michael, and this is my third year as OAC president. I was born in Chicago, but have been living in beautiful Spokane since second grade. Washington was perfect for me: I was able to explore Glacier Peak Wilderness, hike my first 100 mile loop in the Bob Marshall, and summit Mount Baker! As a lifelong outdoor learner and adventurer, I aim to bring my skills and passion for the outdoors to Chicago. I am a third-year, majoring in Computational and Applied Math and minoring in Astrophysics. My favorite OAC trip was to Isle Royale, with the Spring Break Colorado Ski trip coming in a close second. Outside of UChicago, my favorite trip ever was a two week long stint in Alaska during the summer of 2017 spent deep sea kayaking through Kenai Fjord’s National Park and trekking through Denali National Park where we saw a football field-sized ice chunk calve and splash from the Northwestern Glacier. You can ask me about my adventures at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Remi is a second year biochemistry major on the premed track. She is up for just about anything outside- especially hiking/backpacking or ocean related activities, as she grew up on the California coast. Outside the OAC secretary, she also is an EMT and crew chief on the schools emergency medical services unit and works as a tour guide for the admissions office (please say hi!). If you have any strong feelings about notes styles or California wildlife, please let her know at email@example.com

Emma is a second year from Minneapolis studying Economics and Data Science at UChicago. When she isn’t designing merchandise or helping with your reimbusement requests, you can find her hiking, reading, traveling, skiing, playing violin, or doing something else outside. Emma’s favorite outdoor adventures have been last year’s OAC spring break trip to Iceland, as well as rafting through the Grand Canyon and a two-week backpacking trip in Yosemite. Feel free to email her at firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions, ideas, compliments, concerns, or just to say hi.
Laura is a second year from Boise, Idaho who misses skiing very much now that she lives in the Midwest. Fortunately, she discovered the OAC last year and has been able to get her nature fix through their many adventures. Outside of the OAC (so… inside?), she teaches at a preschool with Jumpstart and is a voting ambassador for UChiVotes. Talk to her about small children or getting registered to vote- she is equally passionate about both. Laura also enjoys nordic skiing, public transit, and coming up with novelty s’mores (roasted peeps, anyone?) When can you talk to Laura about these things? Thursday nights at the Point, at one of OAC’s weekly bonfires! Come by for fire, snacks, and good company. If you can’t make it to a bonfire but still want to chat, shoot her an email at email@example.com.
