Olivia Nappe

Olivia Nappe

Hi, my name is Olivia Nappe and I’m the Treasurer and a guide for the Outdoor Adventure Club. Joining this club has given me a new passion and a lot of amazing memories made over such a short period of time. From the final view at the top of a Catskill hike to the new adventures of snowshoeing, there is never a dull moment. It’s a simple, inexpensive and fun way to get off of campus after a long week. I look forward to the next few years of even more memories being made and I hope you join us as well.

Haylee Pink

Haylee Pink

Heyo! My name is Hales Pink and I am a freshman here at Oneonta. I am a dietetics major with a minor in Spanish. Currently I am on the Ultimate Frisbee team as well as a member of APO! I joined the Outdoor Adventure Club because I saw an opportunity to go on fun adventures with other people who love the outdoors as much as I do. Coming into my first year at college I never expected to have the privilege to be a guide for the club. Since joining, I have become a more active member of this amazing club. So far I’ve hiked in the Catskills several times, I went whitewater rafting, I’ve been rock climbing and one of my favorites, kayaking, and paddle boarding! If you see me on campus don’t be afraid to say hi or reach out to me if you have any questions!! I’m always looking to meet new people : )
