Megan Buster, Student Director

Since I started working in the OP a year and 3 months ago, I have experienced more opportunities then I ever could have imagined I would do through out my college career and this is only the beginning. Snowboarding, surfing and camping are a few of my favorites. The trips on the weekends helps give a little break from the school.

Working here is laid back, fun, and I get to meet lots of new people. I look forward to all the new adventures to come.

Erik Johnson, Equipment Manager

Hey, my name is Erik Johnson and I am the Equipment Manager for the Outdoor Program. I grew up in Anchorage, Alaska. My family and I loved the Alaskan wilderness and we tried to take advantage of every opportunity we had to explore it. Growing up in Alaska allowed me to get experience in a variety of outdoor activities. My favorite things to do in the outdoors are camping, fishing, hunting, and snowboarding. However my all-time favorite thing to do is to just hang out with friends around a fire and swap awesome outdoor adventure stories.

Swing by the OP and see what trips we have planned or just hang out and chat about the great Oregon outdoors!

Patrick Oswald, Communication Manager

I may be a little different from most people because I love the rain. You might understand if you are from the Pacific Northwest. I grew up spending a lot of my free time in the outdoors (in the rain). From a young age my brothers, our friends, and I would explore the forest behind our house, make forts, climb trees, pretty much the full wilderness experience. As I got older, we transitioned into bikes, both BMX and MTB, and it was always just a fun time looking for new jumps or finding new trails to explore. Naturally, I got into boy scouts so I have a lot of backpacking experience, and of course experience camping in the rain.

When I got to Oregon Tech, I was super excited to go on all the trips the OP offered: biking, camping, caving, snowboarding, hiking, you name it. It was awesome. Now I just feel super fortunate to be a part of this great team at the OP. I actually started snowboarding because of the deals the OP offered, so for anyone who is maybe thinking about starting a new hobby, quit thinking about it and Just Do It!

Noah Smith, Trip Coordinator

Hey there Oregon Tech, my name is Noah Smith and I am a trip coordinator at The Outdoor Program. I’m from beautiful Ashland, Oregon and I love all of the different outdoor activities that Southern Oregon has to offer. I’m currently a junior at Oregon Tech studying electrical engineering. I went on an OP trip my first year at Oregon Tech and loved the adventure and the friendly staff. When I learned the OP was hiring last year I decided to apply in order to spend more time outdoors in a fun, safe environment, and to help the program offer as much as possible. Some of the outdoor activities I enjoy are mountain biking, snowboarding, surfing, and anything that can be done in or on the water in solid or liquid form.

It’s a good thing the OP does everything! So, come into the office and meet the staff and sign up for a great time outdoors.

Kaleb Turner, Trip coordinator

Hey, my names Kaleb Turner and I'm a new trip coordinator with Outdoor Program. I was born and raised in the wilds of Palmer, Alaska so a love for snowy mountains goes without saying. I'm studying electrical and renewable energy engineering and am starting my junior year at Oregon Tech. I love the outdoors and am stoked at the opportunity to help plan some trips to aide your escape from the "exciting" city of Klamath Falls.

So, stop reading this and go sign up for a trip with the OP and have some fun!
