CiCi Conroy – Outdoor Programs Manager
Hey everyone! My name is Cici (she/her) and I am a junior here at Bates. I am majoring in Environmental Studies with a minor in Anthropology. I grew up in Connecticut and have spent a bunch of time recently working in Colorado and Block Island! I like to ski, hike, run, play guitar, and love all things involving food (especially lobster rolls and anything dessert oriented). I am insanely excited to be one of the Outdoor Programs Manager for BOC this year! If you see me around campus feel free to come and chat with me about BOC, the outdoors, food, or anything in general 🙂 Can’t wait for a great fall semester with you all!

Adi Sandoval – Outdoor Programs Manager
Bio coming soon!
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.

You can reach Ethan at or by phone at (617) 320-0448

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.
