Why did you get involved with Outdoor Adventures (OA)?
I am a Marietta Campus student. After the consolidation, my friend and I were curious about climbing so we wwent to get belay certified in the Climbing Gym. I looked across the hallway and saw all of the wood paneling in the OA offices. When I went inside I saw all of the tools and when I asked the desk person they said that KSU had a bike shop. I applied, and I have been working there ever since!
What do you love about OA?
The OA department gives students who wouldn't otherwise have access to outdoor equipment and knowledge access to the beauty of the outdoors. It helps spread the health benefits and fun of outdoor activities to all of KSU's communities.
Why should other students get involved?
As more students get involved with Outdoor Adventures, more people will have exposure to the wonder of nature. That's something that I believe can be lost in out fast paced world. There's something therapeautic about being surrounded by nature and about doing activities that allow you to have fun in it without destroying it. To that point, being involved in outdoor activities promotes a greater appreciation for the environment. That's the greatest takeaway for any outdoor activity in my experience.
"The dream of my life
Is to lie down by a slow river
And stare at the light in the trees-
To learn something by being nothing
A little while but the rich
Lens of attention."
