If you have any questions about club memberships, she’s your go-to gal.
Public Relations: Samantha Jones-Jackson
Samantha is a senior studying mechanical engineering. While she spends time indoors studying or looking for the perfect Mac & Cheese recipe on Pinterest, her home is the outdoors. Her hobbies included spiriting down beaches at night and dancing until the sun comes up but the best time she has is when it’s cold and there is enough snow to ski in, make snow angels in or just sleep in. Any time of the year you can find her hiking, hammocking or climbing.

Gear Manager: Judson VanWyk
This “dirty hippie” is a Environmental Bio/Microbio senior but will be here another year because he is Wilder. He enjoys _______________ (place ANY outdoor activity in the blank) and trying new things. snorkeling/ being wet, hiking, any board sport, climbing anything, and camping (WiNTer) are some of his favorite activities. You can probably spot him riding his bike no handed in the road while grooving to the ride vibe. Be careful spending too much time around him, you may catch a cool. I did not write this. He took a pull of maple syrup after not writing this.
Historian: Tyler Yezman
Tyler is a sophomore studying Supply Chain Management with a minor in Russian. Chances are that at club events Tyler is either taking pictures of the stars or standing around the campfire discussing the ways of ultralight backpacking. He enjoys all outdoor activities, but his favorites are backpacking, fly fishing, and mountaineering. Apart from the outdoors Tyler also loves learning languages, traveling, and making videos of club adventures.

Secretary: Evan Fischer
I’m writing this bio, Evan Fischer’s my name. I hope you read it twice, cause it will be my rise to fame.
I was born and raised in the metro of the D. Now I’m at MSU to pursue that degree.
My major of choice is Environmental studies. Anyone wanna be my friend, I’m always looking for buddies.
The activities I enjoy are really not that small. I’m always looking for new things, I want to try them all.
If I had to choose a favorite, I’d choose my unicycle fo sho. I ride it all the time, even in the snow.
My other favs are climbing and hiking. It’s pretty hard to find an outdoorsy activity not to my liking.
Welp, that’s all about me, I said it in a nutshell. I hope to meet you soon, and listen to stories that you’ll tell.
Campus to Coast Coordinator: Joe Dewan
Joe is a Junior at Michigan State with grand ideas of law school upon graduation. When he’s not busy serving as the club’s resident Deadhead or volunteering with local bakeries to reduce their pie supply, his favorite activities include skiing, running, hammocking and paddling. He’s just as comfortable running a marathon as he is watching a Game of Thrones marathon. Joe completed Campus to Coast in 2017 and is very excited to be in charge of this year’s race!
