Adventure Series

Adventure Series outings are fun, alternative learning experiences which challenge students to engage in physically demanding outdoor activities that not only emphasize wellness, but provide practical leadership tools, lessons on group dynamics, and opportunities to enhance communication and social skills.

We also hold open rock wall times twice a week, Mondays 7pm-9pm and Thursdays 11am-1pm at the rock wall in the (in UCOM)! No experience necessary. Come try one of the best ways to get a workout!
