The office of Student Engagement and the department of Recreation and Wellness' Outdoor Adventure Experience present DISCOVERY, week-long outdoor adventure of backpacking, reflection, and camping. DISCOVERY will challenge you to seek your personal direction through experiential learning, discussion, adventure programming, and reflection. 

DISCOVERY is a once-in-a-lifetime experience that will show you the power within yourself to conquer all of your fears and achieve your personal goals. Don't just take our word for it. See what students are saying about it below.
