Staff

The Student Coordinator team works tirelessly throughout the spring and summer to bring you a fun and meaningful experience. They plan the trips, select and train the staff, and are the faces behind the many communications you receive if you are placed in TWO. Email the TWO coordinator team if you have any questions about TWO.

Each TWO trip is led by two Student Leaders. Leaders are primarily juniors and seniors selected because of their passion for welcoming the first-year class, as well as their enthusiasm for the outdoors. TWO Student Leaders will be right there with you in the woods, helping you to make the most of your experience. All of our leaders have had extensive training that includes wilderness first aid, leave-no-trace principles, backcountry camping skills, and group dynamics.

Support Staff make sure the program runs smoothly from beginning to end. In addition to attending many of the same trainings as the leaders, they also prepare the equipment and food for each trip and respond to the needs of trips while they are out. Support staff take pride in being the first faces students see when arrive for their TWO experience.
