Laura DuPont 

Rental Center Coordinator                 & The Way Intern

Laura is about to start her Senior year as a Psychology major.  She is a transplant from Illinois and found her love for the outdoors as a child climbing trees and running though corn fields. She has been a part of Outdoor Leadership for four years now. As a Freshman she attended The Way. Her sophomore year she returned to lead and now she is back once more for her third and final summer of The Way.


Julia Chandler

Rental Center Employee          & The Way Backpack guide

Julia is a Dietetics major who grew up spending time in the lakes and evergreen trees of the Pacific Northwest, where she discovered her personal and spiritual connection to the outdoors. The summer before she transferred to PLNU, Julia decided to sign up for The Way. Because of the positive and empowering experience she had as a participant, she is returning to help guide and facilitate new students in their outdoor experience.
