Humans of Northwood: Sam Rudy ‘23

I can play the guitar and tend to impress the ladies when I play. I am from Wellsboro, Pennsylvania, which is a small town with about 3,000 people, similar to Lake Placid. I am a skier, but I love to fish and hunt when I am not skiing. I have one sister and two brothers who I love to spend time with. Having siblings in a small town surrounded by nature gave me creativity and endless entertainment. I became an outdoors guy when I was younger, and I have loved nature and sports ever since. I was surprisingly a huge baseball kid growing up.

I came to Northwood this year because it is a good opportunity for my academic and athletic careers. I think Northwood has done a good job of challenging me athletically and academically, which was exactly what I was looking for. I am constantly pushed by my peers, which I enjoy. I want to ski in college after Northwood, and I want to be an aerospace engineer. I am working on my private pilot’s license and have a passion for planes.

My favorite food is my dad’s famous steak and chips. I don’t know how he does it, but the steak’s always cooked to perfection. I also love Costa Rican food. My favorite place to visit is Costa Rica because of the chill vibes, food, and weather. I want to travel the world when I get older, and the number one thing on my bucket list is to travel to Kitzbuhel, Austria to ski the Streif. I am going to work this summer and hopefully save enough money to visit Austria one day.
