Eliza Vera

Favorite trip/outdoor activity:

MUDCAVING!!!! And being in the ocean.

Favorite outdoor location in San Diego:

La jolla cove!

Three things you wish you knew prior to starting college:

  • How awesome OA is/all of the trips and to get involved right away!
  • How everyone finds there little family away from here when you get involved in the right thing.
  • How much fun/adventure time I would have!!

Why did you join the guide program?

First semester last year (my freshman year) I automatically hit it off with all of the people I went mudcaving with (my first trip).  I felt like I really connected with the guides and the rest of the participants, and it felt to me like a little family.   I wanted to give that same experience to other people who maybe haven’t found their niche here at USD yet.

Weirdest food you have created and/or ate:

Sea urchin. It was AWESOME
