Housing & Residence Life | Wellness & Recreation Partnership

Outdoor Adventures is a partnership between the Department of Housing & Residence Life and the Department of Wellness & Recreation. Outdoor Adventures is managed by Wellness & Recreation but funded by Housing & Residence Life. Herbert Wellness Center membership does not include Outdoor Adventures because the fees paid for membership do not contribute to Outdoor Adventures funding.
