Humans of Northwood: Sophia Kelting ‘23 

“I am from Saranac Lake, New York. I chose to transfer to Northwood because I wanted to find greater Nordic Skiing opportunities and increase the volume of my training. I found Northwood to suit me very well because of the people around me with different backgrounds and with extensive diversity.  

“Growing up in the Adirondacks has made me who I am today. I love the outdoors. As a kid, my parents had me in the Dewey Mountain ski program. I was deeply involved in my community. I was hiking mountains and spending all my time outdoors.  

“I am very excited to further my academic and athletic career in college. I am currently looking to ski Division 1. I took part in the US Junior Nationals last year in Minnesota, and I continue to train daily.  

“I am also looking forward to studying environmental engineering. I love studying math and science and hope to translate that into a college major.”
