Outdoor Pursuits


Welcome to Outdoor Pursuits!

Outdoor Pursuits (or OP, as we like to call ourselves) is your one stop shop for outdoor adventure on campus. There is no membership fee, and you don’t need any previous outdoor experience. Here are all the ways you can get involved:

Trips

We have trips almost every weekend and most university breaks. They are open to all WFU students, and no experience is needed! Your trip will be guided by one of our trained student staff members. All equipment, food, and transportation is provided. Trips range from local day hikes which last a few hours, to 9 day spring break trips in Costa Rica. Click here to learn more  or sign up!

Community Events

These are on-campus events typically held on weekdays. They’re a way for you to get your outdoor adventure fix without having to leave campus. Most of our community events are free, though some do require registration.¬† Community events are open to everyone, even if you’ve never been on a trip before! Click here to check out the schedule!

The Climbing Wall

Located in the WF Wellbeing Center, the climbing wall is open to any WFU student, faculty, or staff member. If you’re new to climbing, no worries, our staff will show you the ropes. Climbing shoe, harness, and chalk rentals are free. Just ask a staff member. Click here for more info!

Gear Rentals

Want to plan your own adventure? Stop by the Rental and Resource Center (more commonly known as OP) to rent everything you need. Gear rentals are available for all WFU Students, Faculty, Staff, or other individual with a valid Wellness Membership. Click here for available gear and pricing info!

Work for OP

OP is always looking for hardworking, open minded, passionate students to join our staff team. Working for OP is not a walk in the park. We have high expectations, and we will constantly challenge you. The result is a tight nit, supportive community that does great things in the outdoors. If this is a challenge you’d like to take on, click here to fill out an interest form. We typically hire in the spring, so make sure to check back with us then. Applications are sent out over our list serv, and on Campus Rec social media (Facebook & Instagram), so make sure to follow us so you don’t miss the memo!
