WHY WORK WITH US
Connect with the next generation of outdoorsmen and women.
College Outside’s goal is to educate and provide gear to help students get outside and build their relationship with the outdoors. By addressing their biggest pain-points, we’ve become a trusted guide and connection to over 200+ (and growing) outdoor groups and tens of thousands of students across the country.
Get the message (and product mix) right.
Staying relevant, educating, and finding the right products for first time student outdoorsmen and women isn’t always easy. We will work together with you to pick products, customize your voice, and tailor your go-to-market strategy for this passionate demographic. If you’ve already got it figured out, that’s cool too, we can just help you spread the word.
Test, Learn, Iterate...Succeed!
You’re not just throwing your marketing dollars out into the universe and hoping for the best. We use real-time shopper data to learn what works and identify areas to innovate. Plus, you’ve got the trusted voice and influence of College Outside on your side!
COLLEGE OUTSIDE BY THE NUMBERS
WHAT OUR MEMBERS SAY ABOUT US
Kurt, Director of Bates First Year Orientation Program
“Our program consists of 470 students on 56 different trips, ranging from backpacking to climbing to base camping. We need specialized equipment for multiple disciplines and College Outside offers a great selection for prices that are hard to find elsewhere. College Outside is an excellent resource for our program!”
Nathan, Director of Campus Recreation, University of Wisconsin - Superior
“College Outside has been a great program for our students and outdoor program to have access to. There is enough equipment options to provide a lot of the “staples” that any outdoor program needs. I would highly recommend College Outside to any other college/university outdoors program that is looking to provide a great opportunity for their students to purchase gear at an affordable rate, or any outdoor program that is looking to utilize one site to find their equipment needs.”
Billy, President of University of Connecticut Outing Club
“To me, College Outside is a fantastic resource and opportunity for programs like us. Beyond just having an awesome retail site, they host events to engage people in the nature and foster outdoorsy culture. While having our own club is a great time, being able to interact and share ideas with similar organizations makes our own club even stronger, and we’re glad to have such a great opportunity provided by College Outside.”
