Southern Outdoor Recreation (SOR) is an organization created to give students an avenue in which to pursue various outdoor activities while at the College. Several activities are planned during each term of the school year. Occasionally, trips are combined with other institutions in order to make the most of resources and participation.
Activities include, but are not limited to, white water rafting, rock climbing, kayak lessons, SCUBA lessons, hiking and camping, caving, snow skiing, and mountain biking. Suggestions for new activities are always welcome and should be submitted to the Director for consideration. Please see the on-line Striplin Center Calendar or call 226-4936 for the latest SOR trip offerings.
