Adventure Trip Registration

Outdoor Recreation takes students on adventure trips throughout the year. The ORC is the place to sign up in person for adventure trips, get gear ready for a trip, and have pre-trip meetings in preparation for the activities. Online sign up is also available for adventure trips.

Bike & Skateboard Repair

The Outdoor Resource Center bike shop provides a free and low cost repair and maintenance service for personal bicycles. If the bicycle is in need of replacement parts, the ORC sells some of the parts that are usually required at low prices. Students can also bring parts in from the store and have the ORC staff install them. The ORC employees are more than willing to help students with their bike repair needs, as well as teach a thing or two about bike repairs. For students who already know how to make the repairs, but do not have the correct tools, the ORC allows students to come in with their bike and use the tools to make repairs and adjustments on their own. Come visit the ORC with your bike today!

Items Available for Purchase in the ORC: Brake Pads, Foot Pedals, Shifter Cables, Brake Cables, Headlights, Rear Lights, U-Locks, Tire Tubes, Tube Patches, and more!
