My name is Andrew Van Slyke. I was born and raised in Lake Placid and have lived here ever since. I came to Northwood to join the Alpine Ski Team. I have been skiing ever since I was one year old. I’ve been to Colorado, California, all over the East Coast, Alberta, and other parts of Canada for ski racing. Ski racing is something I really enjoy doing, and I hope I can do it for a long time. I like to fly drones, fix old boats, water ski, run and take photos in my free time.

I guess it’s kind of weird and cool at the same time that my mom is a teacher at Northwood. Most kids don’t have their mom around them all the time, but our schedules are practically the same. She started working here as a nurse when I was in third grade. She is now an art teacher. After high school, I would like to become a mechanical engineer. My top college choices next year would probably be RPI and Clarkson.
