SOU Wilderness Experience

Raider Wilderness Experience sign-ups now live!

New and returning Southern Oregon University students are invited to start their new school year on the right foot by signing up for this year’s Raider Wilderness Experience (RWE).

Students can join Outdoor Program staff Sept. 17-20 for a week of rock climbing, whitewater rafting, backpacking or camping in some of the most breath-taking outdoor locations in this region. These wilderness trips are a fantastic way to get outside and meet new people, with highly trained Outdoor Program staff ready to make this week one of the most memorable moments of the year.

None of the trips require any prior experience, and costs include transportation, instruction, food, equipment and lodging. These trips fill quickly, so those who are interested are encouraged to register soon.

Living in the dorms this year? Early move-in is available on Sept. 16 for all students participating in RWE.
