Vice President


Aidan Roberts

Hey there! My name is Aidan Roberts, Hoofer Outing Vice President. I am currently a junior at UW studying Statistics and Conservation Biology. When in the outdoors, I enjoy backpacking, climbing, scuba diving, and sleeping on picnic tables (as pictured). I am very excited by clubs potential for growth this year. In my time as VP, I hope to facilitate a welcoming environment within the club conducive for both learning and having fun. Feel free to e-mail me at outingvicepresident@hoofers.org with any questions or concerns you may have. See ya out there!



Sophie Lackner

My name is Sophie Lackner and I am currently the Hoofers Outing Treasurer and a backpacking trip leader.

My goal this year as treasurer is to make trips more accessible to a wide array of students here at UW-Madison.

Backpacking Chair


Joe Foye

Howdy! I'm Joe. I dropped my razor in a lake while guiding canoeing trips in the BWCAW and Quetico this summer and haven't gotten around to buying a new one. I enjoy backpacking, kayaking, canoeing, skiing, snowshoeing, mountain biking, climbing, sailing, hammocking, and anything else as long as its outdoors. (Cash me outside.)

Caroline Rose

I have been paddling, camping, and spending time in the great outdoors my whole life, so when I joined Hoofers as a freshman student in 2009, it felt like home. I am especially involved in Hoofer whitewater trips, paddling both kayaks and open canoes. I am currently serving as a Water Safety Co-chairperson, so I approve all boating trips and trip leaders.

Social Chair


Emma Johnson

Hello! I'm Emma. I have a passion for all things paddling, backpacking, camping, hiking, and adventure related. The outdoors has been an integral part of my life ever since my father introduced me to the Boundary Waters Canoe Area as a young child. Successfully portaging a canoe at the age of 12 was my single greatest accomplishment in sixth grade! If you have questions regarding social events, please shoot me an email at social@hooferouting.org.



Eric Russell

What's up! I'm Eric, the webmaster for the Hoofer Outing Club. I'm a Senior studying Computer Science and I've gone on various backpacking and whitewater kayaking trips with the club, basically just in search for the dopest hammocking spots I can find. If you have any questions about what I do or want to take over this position next year with updating and designing our website feel free to shoot me an email at tech@hooferouting.org!
