A Boarding School Offering Adventure & Travel


We recently posted an interview with Lowell Whiteman School admission director, Derek Svennungsen, over on the Western Boarding Schools Association blog (Lowell Whiteman School: Local Outdoor Adventure and Global Travel).

Regular readers might remember our announcement that we’re doing some production work with WBSA as they get their blog up and running.

Derek shared a few minutes with us for a Skype interview exploring Lowell Whiteman and the opportunities that grow directly from being in Steamboat Springs, CO.

Naturally, the mountians, outdoor recreation, snow, and winter sports figure prominently at Lowell Whiteman. Each April, though, the entire school turns its attention to the world beyond Steamboat.

Students and faculty (everyone) pack-up and head out all over the globe in small groups to engage and immerse themselves in places, cultures, and languages different from their own; the focused local engagement practiced in Steamboat gains experience and perspective.

    I was a student at the Whiteman School from 1998 to 2001. The foreign travel program had a huge impact on my life path and my world view. Due in no small part to my final LWS trip to China, I am now a Chinese – English translator and have spent the majority of the last ten years living in foreign countries. More importantly though, LWS taught me how to foster relationships and approach problem solving with a win-win attitude. I can’t say enough about how much I appreciate the school, its faculty and the contributions they made to my education. All I can do is express my thanks.
