Daniel Mercier

Major: Recreation and Outdoor Education

Emphasis: Outdoor Leadership

Hometown: Littleton, CO

Reason for coming to Western: I always grew up playing sports and outdoors so I figured it would be a great place to explore my interests. And out of the schools I was able to attend Gunnison has the best surrounding area to adhere to my lifestyle.

Interests: My interests include meeting other people, skiing, hiking, rafting, fishing, traveling, and living simply.

Future Goals: I hope to travel the world using my degree to enrich the lives I encounter. I plan to work with children mostly educating them through multiple kinds of outdoor and environmental practices to broaden their views of the world.

Senior Project: For my senior project, a group of classmates and myself will be organizing a fun and wacky ski race up on Crested Butte Mountain. This race will bring raising money for multiple non-profit organizations that include the Crested Butte Snow Sports Foundation and several others.
