Outdoor Explorations

GeoJourney 2018.

Please note that Outdoor Explorations trips are being planned for the 2021 – 2022 academic year and will adhere to NC State’s Covid-19 safefy guidelines.

We are pleased to announce our Spring Break 2022 trip to Seattle & Portland to explore the best of these sister cities’ culture, food, history, and of course great outdoors! More information was made available by email. The application for the trip will open on October 20 and close on October 22.

We are currently in the planning stages for our Mayventure 2022 and GeoJourney 2022 experiences as well. Look for more information about those in the weeks to come.

The University Scholars Program Outdoor Explorations (OE) are designed to expose students to a variety of environments, activities, and experiences in the outdoors. Outings in OE are vehicles for discovery, education, reflection, and adventure. Each OE trip exposes students to a topic or skill set that is enhanced by time in the outdoors. When students return to campus after these adventures they are charged with sharing their experiences with their peers to foster a culture of engagement and ownership. OE staff use diverse techniques to reach these objectives including nature awareness, outdoor adventure, group development and creative documentation.
