Best Kept College Secrets

Colleges for Real People

But I Love The Outdoors… Where Can I Go To College?

Almost every college supports some kind of outing club or outing program, and almost all make it reasonably easy to leave the campus and get into something like a wilderness setting.  There are some colleges, however, that are uncommonly well suited to the use of outdoor resources and some that have an uncommon determination to bring outdoor education into the curriculum. Here’s a selective list of the top ten in my view:

The University of Vermont
