Michelle Dreimann ’ 19 attended Stratton
Mountain School, in Vermont, specifically to
focus her high school years on both academics
and competitive skiing. She was determined to
find a college where she could keep pursuing
her passion for powder while working toward
a future career in business.
Knowing that, some might be surprised
that Dreimann chose Washington and Lee
University over the University of Denver.
But a major factor in her decision — besides
academics— was the knowledge that although
W&L did not already have a skiing club, it did
have a robust Campus Recreation Program
that would allow her to start her own.
Two years later, Dreimann is president of
W&L’s Skiing and Snowboarding Club, which
has 250 members.
“It has given me such a variety of people
that I probably wouldn’t have met otherwise,
and it’s given me such a broad network of
people I can reach out to,” she said.
