GO! Outdoors

Female Student Kayaking

GO! Outdoors gives incoming first-year students an opportunity to better connect with other first-year students and to JSU.

Adventure Recreation has designed an adventure-based experience to jumpstart the first-year students’ ability to meet other incoming Gamecocks and to learn how to better face the challenges of being a college student ahead. This program is open to all experience levels and is only open top first-year students. 

Each trip is specifically created to provide students with leadership experience to make the transition into college life smoother, and so that they may use these skills throughout their own college experience.
