Meet the Board

Serving as a member of the Wooster Volunteer Network Board requires a weekly time commitment. WVN Board members take on various roles including:

  • linking with community agencies to identify service needs that exist in the community
  • maintaining a database and information about students who want to volunteer
  • encouraging students to consider volunteerism as part of their educational experience
  • planning and participating in campus-wide volunteer activities
  • providing a funding process and a means of transportation for all volunteer groups on campus
  • supervising the program houses and other campus volunteer groups

Oriana Freeman (ofreeman19@wooster.edu): Co-President

My name is Oriana Freeman and I am a senior Neurobiology major from Golden Valley, Minnesota. On WVN, I work with the program houses as well as work with advertising. I volunteer because its a great way to see the world from new perspectives and to give back to the community at the same time. Outside of WVN I am a First Responder, a member of the Ultimate Frisbee team, and a member of the health coach program. I love spending time outdoors and with friends. Contact me for information on the service houses!

 

Koral Kasnyik (kkasnyik20@wooster.edu):

I am a sophomore BCMB major from Oberlin, Ohio and am the secretary of BCMB Club. Even more importantly, I love impacting those around me. I am the treasurer for WVN and and the Service and Civic Engagement Chair of Campus Council. I am also a member of Delta Theta Psi and am a Rush Chair for this season. When I’m not on campus, you’ll find me on a mountain, preferably with a nice cup of coffee in my hand. After graduation, I plan to hike the Appalachian Trail before medical school. Contact me with budget questions!

 

Nate Addington, Director of Civic and Social Responsibility (naddington@wooster.edu): Advisor

Nate Addington serves as The College of Wooster’s Director of Civic and Social Responsibility. Throughout his career Nate has been interested in what motivates people from different backgrounds and identities to come together in community. Specifically, he loves exploring how he, and the students he works with, can be intentional in helping those communities move forward towards a sense of equity and justice. He has particular interests in creating long term partnerships in the local community, while also wrestling with larger issues; such as international immigration policy and reform. This latter passion often reveals itself in the various service and immersion trips he has facilitated in Central America since 2006.
