About West Virginia University

Adventure WV began as a small Outdoor Orientation Program for incoming WVU first-year students. We have since expanded our offerings to include an Outdoor Recreation Center, Climbing Wall, Outdoor Education Center, Challenge Course, Zip Canopy Tour, International Study Abroad Programs, Leadership Training opportunities, and many other Outdoor and Experiential Education programs.
Our initial vision to provide wilderness-based college orientation programs for first-year students has developed in to a more comprehensive charge of developing adventure education programming for students of all levels, supporting adjustment to college life, retention, and career success by assisting student development in self knowledge, team work, and leadership skills.
