University Recreation
Outdoor Adventure Recreation


  • Seattle University’s Outdoor Adventure Recreation (OAR) program is committed to providing inclusive and intentional outdoor experiences. Through an experiential-learning curriculum, OAR develops responsible student leaders who are committed to building community, while fostering an interest in outdoor pursuits that encourages the lifelong physical, emotional, social, intellectual, and spiritual development of our students. OAR embodies an appreciation for the natural world; extending an ethos of environmental stewardship to every trip experience.

    Whether your affiliation is as a former participant or trip leader, a parent of a current student, or through your shared belief in the benefits of outdoor education, we value your support. Your advocacy makes a difference for the University, our students, and the outdoor community. Your contribution goes directly to help students by funding  trip scholarships (making every trip fiscally accessible for those with need) and/or leadership development grants for current student leaders seeking to expand their training and certifications.
