Any student interested in the outdoors 

FIG Description:

Join the Outdoor Program in discovering concepts in outdoor leadership! This FIG is heavily involved in programs, activities, and events of the Outdoor Program in addition to learning about outdoor leadership and adventure activities.  This FIG will develop academic, transition, and research skills critical for success as a student.

Students enrolled in the Outdoor Leadership FIG will participate in a three-day introductory rock climbing and camping trip to Vedauwoo, WY! This trip takes place over Labor Day weekend (Sept. 1-3).  More information will be sent to students (i.e. an equipment list, itinerary, and welcome letter) once enrolment in the FIG is complete. Most all the equipment for the camping and rock climbing trip will be provided; transportation, instruction and food are provided, too. 

 Please note: Students enrolled in the Outdoor Leadership FIG should not register for the Fall Outdoor Experience (FOE) through the Outdoor Program, as these programs overlap.
