Hey! My name’s Andrea and I am in my third year at Missouri State. My degree will be in Recreation, Sport, and Park Administration with a minor in Theatre. Before coming to Campus Recreation’s Outdoor Adventures I worked three summers for the Boy Scouts of America at the John S. Swift Base for Venturers and Explorers. Between that and being an employee here I can say that I know a little about a lot outdoors. Some of my hobbies include fencing, Venturing (for those of you who know what that is), theatre, and daydreaming of far-off countries I would like to visit someday. I also like sleeping and watching movies, just like any other college kid. In the summer of 2013 I will be spending three months in Mexico in the Cancun area looking for tourism internships to finish off my education.

My name is Josh Luitjohan and I am a current senior majoring in Exercise and Movement Science with minors in Biomedical Science and Chemistry. I was born and raised on the east side of St. Louis (Edwardsville, IL). I am the youngest of the 6 Luitjohan kids. My plans are to attend Chiropractic college post graduation and begin practicing in the greater Colorado area. My passions in life come from extreme sports like snow and water skiing, mountain biking, outdoor sports such as soccer and Frisbee golf, and searching for those thrilling experiences that can provide a rush of adrenaline; like that drop you feel in your stomach after jumping out of a plane 13,000 feet up. I also enjoy long walks up the face of tall mountains and discussing philosophical issues of life.
"I went to the woods because I wished to live deliberately, to front only the essential facts of life, and see if I could not learn what it had to teach, and not, when I came to die discover that I had not lived." --Thoreau

I am a senior majoring in Wildlife Biology, and counting the days until graduation! I love working with exotic animals and learning everything about them.
