Students who enjoy sports, the outdoors and changing seasons may be best suited for a college in New England. For instance, the Southern Vermont College is within several miles of some of the best skiing, snowboarding and hiking trails in the state.
Those who wish to partake in outdoor sports with peers may be interested in joining the school's Adventure Club. The program consists of a group of students who honor and respect the earth and enjoy participating in outdoor activities, according to the college. Any student who wishes to be active outdoors - regardless of prior experience - is welcome to join.
The club offers a way to explore and partake in the environment. Examples of activities that the Adventure Club offers are hiking, snowshoeing, camping, canoeing, kayaking, snowboarding, skiing and other environment-oriented sports. At times, there have been collaborations with the Environmental Club for a more scientific approach. There have also been several hikes around Mt. Anthony, Mt. Bromley, Mt. Stratton and the Appalachian Trail.
The club holds numerous campus clean-ups during the fall semester.
