The Adventure Sports Center (formerly the Wilderness Program) has been an integral part of my experience at Saint Michael’s College. I first was introduced to the program during the summer before my senior year of high school when three student instructors came to the Mount Washington Valley to get their AMGA Single Pitch Instructor certification, one of my best friend’s dad was running their course and I was a mock student. From then on out St. Mike’s was on my mind whether I knew it or not.
My freshman year I had my work study in the Wilderness Program office, sophomore year I became a student instructor and by senior year was the Climbing Program Coordinator. Before I knew it I was leading my last rock trip of my college career, and I’m so glad it got to be with this group. Now it’s time to look forward to ice climbing!
