We explore the Southeast with single & multi-day trips. 

Outdoor Pursuits is FSU’s outdoor adventure program. We travel all over the Southeast with single day and weekend to great outdoor adventure destinations. And, we stay local with shorter excursions from campus.  Every adventure is unique, and each offers an opportunity to develop new skills, enhance your appreciation of the wilderness, adapt to new and challenging situations, and build lifelong relationships.
