Caelan MacQueen is from Calgary Alberta and is in his first year with the Vikings. He is enrolled in a BA program, majoring in Outdoor education in the physical education stream and minoring in Scandinavian studies. He one-day hopes to work as an outdoor guide in the rocky mountains or somewhere in Europe, teaching people new skills and to find their own passion for the outdoors. Caelan chose to come to Augustana because of the outdoor program offered and the location and size of the campus.
When Caelan isn’t skiing the trails, you can find him skiing the slopes, hanging out with friends, rock climbing or slacklining. His favourite books are The Kingkiller Chronicle series and The Lord of the rings. His favourite movie is Cars and his favourite food is bangers and mash.
One of his favourite quotes is “Okay, here we go. Focus. Speed. I am speed. One winner, forty-two losers. I eat losers for breakfast. Breakfast? Maybe I should have had breakfast? Brekkie could be good for me. No, no, no, focus. Speed. Faster than fast, quicker than quick. I am Lightning.” - Lightning McQueen
Caelan is supported by his parents Andrew and Cathy, brothers Duncan and Nicklas, the entire MacQueen family and friends, and his snake Ava.
