Angel Lopez

Class of 2019

Hello! My name is Angel Lopez, I'm a student veteran and Geographical Information Science major at the University of Maryland. I currently work as an outdoor Trip Leader for the Adventure Program at UMD. Other than having great GIS system technical skills, my rock climbing instructor certification, WFR medical training, and outdoor leadership skills prove that I love working in the field. I'm also a strong believer in creating a friendly work environment with my fun attitude and encouraging others by spreading optimism. As a Peer Advisor for Veteran Education at UMD, I help incoming student veterans transition to campus lifestyle seamlessly. Outside of work, you can find me whitewater kayaking, mountain biking or hiking with family and friends.
