||Dennis Flynn at one of his favorite hiking destinations, the Spout near Bay Bulls.|
When he is not in class expanding his academic horizons, Mr. Flynn is out pushing the limits of his personal life. An avid outdoor enthusiast, he enjoys open water scuba diving, hiking the East Coast Trail, cycling, running, kayaking, winter camping, snowshoeing, and horseback riding. In addition, Mr. Flynn tries his hand at numerous other extracurricular activities such as woodcarving and pencil sketching. In fact, he often puts his talents to work by making and donating prizes for fundraising activities.
Its attitude over ability, explained Mr. Flynn about his accomplishments. If you have the right attitude and frame-of-mind you can do and learn anything.
Very community-minded Mr. Flynn volunteers with numerous committees on campus and in his hometown of Colliers. Just recently he accompanied a group of 26 youths, aged 16-19, to Rome to participate in the World Youth Day Conference.
I believe in helping others get off on the right foot, said Mr. Flynn.
This month will, no doubt, keep Mr. Flynn busy as he pursues his own educational interests and volunteers with the university orientation committee and the business facultys A Step Up orientation event.
