Miles Anderson – Outdoor Programs Manager
Hi BOC- I’m Miles! I’m super stoked to be one of the Outdoor Program Managers. I love getting outside any way I can- trail running, skiing, and surfing are some of my favorite things. I’m looking forward to working with the outing club and getting students outside over the next year.

Ethan Baker – Equipment Room Manager
Hey everyone, I’m Ethan Baker from Norwell, Massachusetts, and I’m really looking forward to helping to provide outdoor access to everyone at Bates this coming year. As a ski patroller, EMT, and sailor, I think being outside in the mountains or on the water is the best way to enjoy life. My hope for the e-room this year is for everyone on campus to feel welcome at BOC and know that every member of the Bates community should have easy access to our equipment if they so choose.

Hi, I’m Lucy Pike (she/her), and I am a sophomore from Woodside, California! I’m really excited to be in the E-Room this year and to have the opportunity to get to know more of the Bates community! I’m an avid runner, surfer, and mountain biker and have yet to find an outdoor activity that I don’t like. I can’t wait to help people get outside and enjoy all that Maine and surrounding have to offer.

Marisa Melnick – Coordinator of Outdoor Education and Programs
Marisa (she/her) is originally from Massachusetts, but was lucky to discover the beauty of the forests and coasts of Maine when she was a teenager. Before coming to work at Bates, she worked all over the country doing outdoor education and leadership work as well as some recreational guiding. Marisa loves the outdoors for the peace it can offer, for the opportunities it creates for meaningful connections with others, and for the challenges it is sure to throw at you.
