Campus Champion

Fit and active his whole life, Ian White constantly swaps roles as college student, teacher and paid program assistant. He is the kind face encouraging the shivering student who hesitates on a high ropes course. He lends a hand when students learn to paddle a canoe, kayak or paddleboard or to ski downhill or cross-country style. A 2013 graduate in physical education from East Greenbush, N.Y., White likely will remain a friendly fixture at outdoor activities until he collects his master’s degree in environmental and outdoor recreation in December.  “I just keep taking things on and learning from everything,” White said.
