Ben Vandenberg, VP Finance 17-18

Last year was my first year with the outdoors club, and I was enthralled by the both the number and the diversity of trips available for all levels of outdoors enthusiasts. Though it was sometimes difficult to pull myself away from my studies long enough to take weekend trips, every trip I participated in was very rewarding for me. I always came back feeling energized, focused, and ready to take on the next task at school.

This year, I’m excited to share that experience with others as a trip leader for the club! My primary outdoor activity is mountain biking, so I’ll be organizing cross-country and enduro style bike trips to the mountains and the river valley. For the truly adventurous, I would also enjoy some company off-road unicycling!
When I’m not on my bike, you can expect to see me studying in engineering quad, hanging around the climbing wall, or on some of the club climbing trips this year!
