Please contact Tom Caudill at email@example.com for information on upcoming events.
- White Water Rafting
Typically in early fall semester. We like to go to Ohio Pyle for this trip. Historically this has cost students $15-25 pending on who we can work with and how many students we can have before we hit capacity.
We do these year-round pending weather and where we have access to. We have done local hikes near campus, at Salt Fork, Dillon, Blackhand Gorge, and have also gone to places like Hocking Hills which is relatively close by.
- Skiing, Snowboarding, Snow Tubing
We typically do this in late January to Mid-February. We have gone to places like Snow Trails in Mansfield, Ohio and Mad River Mountain in Zanesfield, Ohio.
Typically we might host an event involving kayaks in early fall to mid-fall and late spring. Otherwise, there are kayaks at the Chess Center that students can check-out for free at any time during the year.
- Camping Out
Mid-late Fall in various locations including the Hollow on campus!
- Indoor Rock Climbing
Offered potentially at any point in the year depending on interest and available funding. Last time we went we went to Vertical Adventures in Columbus, Ohio.
