Hoofers Council is composed of the Council President, four Vice Presidents, five Officers, and each of the six Club Presidents. Together, these individuals help make Hoofers the coolest club on campus!
Hey everyone! My name is Marie, and I’m your 2022-2023 Hoofer Council President. I’m a senior studying Wildlife Ecology with a background in Aeronautics. I started out in Hoofers as a transfer student looking to meet some fellow outdoorspeople – and I sure came to the right place! Whether learning how to windsurf on Lake Mendota or carving down Mount Bohemia in fresh powder, Hoofer Clubs offer a wealth of experiences. When I’m not with Hoofers or working on school, you’ll find me unicycling around campus, exploring all the coffeeshops and flying at local airports. Don’t hesitate to reach out with any questions (firstname.lastname@example.org), and if you see me on campus, say hi!
