Our Collegiate Member Groups

Collegiate outdoor programs and groups are the backbone of College Outside. We exist to support these groups, and to help them get more students outside. We know that tens of thousands of individuals are introduced to the outdoors every semester through these programs. They are the future outdoor enthusiasts and nature protectors of the world! College Outside provides these groups a central location to purchase their equipment.
