Student COL Leaders

Abbie Goodman
My name is Abbie Goodman and I am a junior nursing student from Richfield, NC. As long as I can remember I have always loved being outdoors and I believe that this is the main reason that I became involved in COL here at Pfeiffer. I believe that while in college having an outlet to do the kinds of activities that COL offers can be very beneficial to students as they are learning to deal with the stress of college. I think that my favorite outdoor adventure would be whitewater rafting which I have been involved with for several years. Another outdoor adventure that I have got involved with this year that I have really enjoyed is going on rock climbing trips. The thing that I really love about the Center for Outdoor Leadership is that they really want to get students to try new things and to step out of their comfort zones.

Lindsay Sisco

My name is Lindsay Sisco, I am a junior originally from Tampa, Florida but currently live in Asheboro, North Carolina. At Pfeiffer I am currently studying to get a bachelor in science and nursing. I have been interested and involved in COL since the beginning of my freshman year. I have always enjoyed the outdoors since I was little. I have grown up doing outdoor activities with my family, from camping, hiking whitewater rafting, snorkeling in the keys, and fishing in the Atlantic. I have also have been in loved in outdoor activities over the summer including canoe camping, rock climbing, and horseback riding. In short I have always been curious to explore the world around me and meet new people. I believe you can learn many things form the details that make the world around us and the people we have the chance to meet.

A favorite quote of mine to describe my joy in the outdoors is "A tree is not just a tree, and a bug is not just a bug, and a bird not a bird. Everything you see is like a tapestry-with secrets of time, complexities unseen, and beauty incomprehensible, but all known by the one who held the thread and needle who wove them into place."
