Nathan Williams
After dropping out of college three times, Nathan stumbled into a career in web development. Ten years later, he realized that computer work made him miserable and went back to school. Now he loves it and is studying outdoor education at the University of Minnesota - Duluth, with plans to eventually run a college outdoor program and show students that this world is worth saving. He loves sea kayaking, climbing, and instructing backpacking courses for North Carolina Outward Bound School, but feels just as happy sitting in a comfortable chair with a book and a good cup of coffee.

How can you describe a weekend of student leaders from across the U.S. with an intense passion to change the world? The Orientation was a phenomenal experience to meet and build connections that I'm sure will last a lifetime.
