Outdoor Recreation Updates

Policy Update 
In an effort to better align ourselves with the rest of Campus Recreation, CORE now requires a person to hold an active Campus Recreation membership to rent equipment or register for trips.* Most students should be enrolled automatically during the fall and spring semesters (the membership is charged through your student account). All others can purchase a membership at any time at Fike Recreation Center. For details please visit our membership webpage


* A member can rent equipment for a non-member to use. The member assumes all liability for the equipment rented.


*A member can also bring up to 3 non-members as guests on a trip that they have registered for. Guests can register and pay separately. Additional fees for guest registrations apply. 


Check out our Fall semester schedule!

We still have a bunch of different adventure trips coming up during the semester.
