Adventure Programs for Veteran Students
Enjoy the outdoors with fellow veterans
Take a break from academics and enjoy kayaking, biking, and climbing with fellow veterans. The Adventure Program, Veteran Student Life, and Team River Runner offer a variety of programs; some programs are designed to provide a physical challenge or introduce you to a new adventure activity, and some are designed for veterans and their families to get outside and enjoy the outdoors. While adventuring, you’ll build social connections with other veterans. All programs are free for veterans thanks to generous support from the Department of Veteran Affairs.
