Adventure is Everywhere
Whether it’s our 1,100-acre campus or the hundreds of thousands of acres of national park surrounding us, Adventure Programs offer opportunities for you to explore, learn new skills, and discover yourself in the mountains of North Carolina. No matter your experience level, you’ll find an adventure planned for you!
From traversing mountains to paddling lakes, you can sign up for a wide variety of guided off-campus adventures year-round! Join your peers on trips such as waterfall hikes, nature paddles, whitewater rafting, camping, backpacking, and rock climbing. Never worry about transportation or gear, they’ve got you covered!
You don’t have to stray from campus to enjoy the outdoors. Experience tubing and swimming the Swannanoa River, art hikes, scavenger hunts, and adventure races (a combination of challenges you can conquer across campus). Adventure Programs also hosts beginner’s sessions on the climbing wall and frequently changes routes for experienced climbers to enjoy.
