The University offers on Outdoor Education program, located at the Outdoor Education Center, a 20-acre wooded green space, located within walking distance of central campus, which challenges participants to reach beyond their perceived personal limits - physically, mentally and socially, fosters greater appreciation for our natural environment, and develops leadership abilities.
