Outdoor Exploration Theme Community

First-year students have the opportunity to live in the theme community Outdoor Living in Schiff Hall. Outdoor Living provides residents the opportunity to engage in outdoor activities and to live with a close-knit community of like-minded individuals who have the desire to enjoy and learn from outdoor experiences. 

Outdoor Exploration uses outdoor experiences as a forum for teaching important skills and abilities applicable to all aspects of life at the university and beyond. In the past, outdoor experiences have included backpacking, canoeing, mountain biking, sea kayaking and cross-country skiing. As part of the university's co-curriculum, Adventure Education supports growth in integrity, leadership, social awareness and appreciation of diverse ways of knowing and being. Residents of the Adventure Education community in Schiff have the opportunity to work collaboratively with Puget Sound Outdoors and the Residence Hall Association for the community to organize activities and excursions that are of interest to the community.

Prior experience with outdoor activities is not required. Incoming students wishing to apply for the Adventure Education community should indicate their interest on their Housing Application available in myPugetSound mid April.
