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.
