Current Adventures & Events...
The Outdoor Programs welcomes all members of the SOU community to participate in our trips and events regardless of gender identification, sexual orientation, race, ethnicity, disability, height, favorite band, food preferences or any of the cool things that make our community vibrant and diverse.
Every year the Outdoor Program does an orientation event for incoming freshman and transfer students. The Raider Wilderness Experience offers a great chance to start your college career with adventure and challenge. These safety minded, small group adventures are all led by SOU Student staff to some of the best outdoor locations in the region. These fun and challenging adventures are a great way to make friends and have some time to reflect on your transition to university life. All adventures include instruction, meals, equipment, park entrance fees, three nights of camping fees as well as transportation. No experience is necessary for any of our adventures. Cost is $350!
