The Outdoor Adventure program includes activities and instruction within
and around Carmichael Complex. The climbing wall is a place to learn the
basics of rock climbing or to get tips on advanced techniques. We host
different workshops and educational sessions to build upon current skills
or be exposed to something new. The adventure trip program reaches far
beyond the limits of NC State to give students an opportunity to
participate on a variety of outdoor trips. Some examples of trips include
rock climbing, canoeing, and backpacking. Outdoor Adventures also houses an
equipment rental center available for students to rent items at a very low
cost. If you are looking for a mode of transportation, the WolfWheels
bike-rental program through Outdoor Adventures offers a unique, innovative
approach to sustainable transportation at NC State University. All
students, faculty, and staff with a valid Wolfpack One Card are able to
rent bicycles on a daily, weekend, weekly or semester long basis. Outdoor
Adventures is committed to the development of leadership and life skills.
We provide a learning atmosphere that encourages personal growth, ethics,
teamwork, and environmental stewardship, while exploring new opportunities
that bring our diverse campus community together. Email:
