The Northeastern University Huskiers and Outing Club is the outdoors club at Northeastern University. We do outdoor activities, including hiking, camping, skiing/snowboarding, climbing, biking, backpacking, canoeing/kayaking, and more!



Fall 2022 E-Board Members

We are your e-board! If you have any questions about the club, feel free to email any of us!


President: Shail Shah (he/him)

nuhoc.info@gmail.com or shahshail424@gmail.com

Bio: Shail is a fifth year finance and data science student from the great state of New Jersey. He is a runner (not a track star) and is an avid Nacho Cheese Dorito aficionado. He has established his trip clout by running a Munchkin Marathon, leading an ice skating trip without ice skating, and going skydiving on a whim. You can find him on Wednesdays by looking for the guy wearing pink.


Loj Committee Chair: James Roth (he/him)

nuhoc.lcc@gmail.com or jer2038@gmail.com 

Bio: James is a third year Computer Science major, staunch advocate for New Hampshire’s superiority over Vermont, and avid hiker who hails from the tiny, tiny town of Lyme, NH (about one-386th the population of Boston, which is the ONLY reason he swears size doesn’t matter). He believes the Loj is a wonderful place, that “Rock the Casbah” is an actually good song, and that the Fens geese do not deserve the gift of life.


TreasurerAidan Sullivan (he/him)

nuhoc.receipts@gmail.com or apsully01@gmail.com

Bio: [coming soon]


VP Organization: Ben Orton (he/him)


Bio: Ben is a third year Mechanical Engineering Major from Southbury, Connecticut, where he spent his childhood walking through the woods and munching on heads of lettuce. After stalking the NUHOC Instagram as a high school senior, he went up to the Loj for the first time in Fall 2021, and hasn’t been the same ever since… (but in like a good way through). He enjoys hiking, skiing, climbing, canoeing, cycling, and pretty much anything else outdoors except spending too much time waiting at White Mountain Cafe. Long story short, the guy with curly hair.


VP Trips: Charlie Morgan (he/him)


Bio: Charlie is a fifth year Business Major hailing from the wild, wild (mid)west that is Cleveland, Ohio. With nothing but cornfields and rivers that catch on fire, he sought greener pastures for outdoor recreation, ending up in the White Mountains. He enjoys hiking, skiing, and kayaking, and can quickly be found by whispering anything about Cleveland, the Grateful Dead, or just by looking for the color blue.


VP Communications: Ajay Sharma (he/him)


Bio: Nucomer to the NUHOC scene (lol get it), Ajay has rose through the ranks of the e-board from the noble position of weatherman to VP comms. He is excited to communicating with the NUHOC team and the fellow hikers, climbers, travels, adventurers to kick off another year of NUHOC fun. He enjoys animals, long walks on the beach, and gazing at the stars. Feel free to ask him any questions about Spain, sea turtles, or the NUHOC events of the week.


VP Publicity: Ruth Benyo (she/her)

nuhoc.info@gmail.com or ruth@benyoonline.com

Bio: Ruth is a second year chemical engineering major and hopefully photography minor. She’s a fan of living out of a backpack (preferably in the woods), hiking, photography and occasionally skis. She’s quite loud, pretty adventurous and if in doubt is probably the one stressed out in a corner somewhere; most of all though, she’s passionate about NUHOC and super excited to be your VP Pub!


Gear Guy: Phillip Wible (he/him)

nuhocgearguys@gmail.com or phillipwible223@gmail.com

Bio: Phillip is a fourth year Bioengineering and Biochemistry major originally from the wonderful land of Columbus, Ohio. Phillip likes to hike, bike, and ski. But, more than anything, Phillip loves to climb. Whether it’s rock, ice, snow, or the walls of his house, Phillip is probably climbing it.


Ski Chair: Owen Poisson (he/him) 


Bio: Owen is a fourth year chemical engineering and biochemistry major originally from Virginia. He loves being outdoors when it’s snowing, and also when it’s not snowing. Although he does a lot of stupid stuff outside, he always thinks about if it’s safe or not – just not necessarily before he does it. Owen’s NUHOC claim to fame is living to see another day after a glorious battle with Durio zibethinus (not the name of a Roman gladiator, but of an equally cutthroat fruit). If you have any questions about NUHOC or need recommendations for hospitals near the Loj, he’s got you covered.


Climbing Chair: Maddie Porter (she/her)


Bio: Maddie is a third year environmental science major with a concentration in geoscience from a town in central Massachusetts that’s half the population of northeastern. She didn’t really do outside things three years ago, but since coming to Boston she has discovered her love of climbing and looking at rocks. She also likes digging holes in the ground to look at dirt. If you want to learn about climbing and go on some cool trips, Maddie can show you the ropes. Maddie also knows that’s a terrible joke, but decided to type it anyway.


Trip Grants Chair: MacKenzie Mazzarisi (she/her)


MacKenzie is a second year bioengineering student from New Jersey (does not claim any other relation to the state). She spends most of her free time in the woods, either hiking, snowboarding (way cooler looking than skiing) or climbing, and often has to be talked down from attempting dangerous feats with serious injuries. Favorite saying: “it’ll go”.


Build Committee Co-Chairs: Steven Abbott (he/him) and Filip Musial (he/him)

nuhocbuildcommittee@gmail.com (individual: sbabbott08@gmail.com and musial.f@northeastern.edu)

Bios: [coming soon]

Webmaster: Aaron Pradhan (he/him)


Bio: Aaron is a fifth year computer science major, but when he’s not on the computer you can find him outdoors or spending time with other NUHOCers (or both). He is originally from the town of Guilderland, NY. He learned to love the outdoors when he joined his high school cross country team in ninth grade. He enjoys hiking, running, biking, skiing, and most other adventurous things in nature as well. You can talk to him about bike commuting, distance running, technology, or stupid ways to hike as many 4000 footers as possible out of the Loj.

Permanent SGA Representative: Meg Dalrymple (she/her)


Bio: On May 8, 1996 the world was changed for the better. Margaret Riley Anne Dalrymple II was born. Through much trial and tribulation growing up in middle class suburban New Jersey, she persevered and was accepted to Northwestern University. In the fall of 2014, she began her quest for knowledge in biology. During her sophomore year, she was dragged to the luxurious Quincy Quarries to try going up things. Given the prime environment, she was instantly hooked on climbing. Her middler year, she became the NUHOC SGA rep and has been ever since. She plans on dying in a freak accident at 69, but until then wants to do rad things outside.
