Southern Adventures is the university community’s resource for adventure programming. Southern Adventures provides guided backpacking, sea kayaking, canoeing, and cycling trips that range from weekend trips around the southeast to week-long trips across the country.

The equipment rental program provides all the gear needed for individual adventures. The challenge course is designed to provide exciting, experiential opportunities that focus on leadership, communication, self/group awareness and inter-personal skills.

The climbing wall, located in the RAC, allows participants to experience the thrill of rock climbing indoors. In addition, a bouldering cave is available to build climbing strength as well as perfect technique.

Instructional clinics are offered throughout the year to learn kayaking, belaying, navigating and other hard skills for outdoor recreation enthusiasts.
