Proposed Expedition Club - Seeking EOU Student Members

Interested in extending your university education? Ever considered paddling in the Amazon, trekking in the Himalaya, or experiencing the 24-hour Arctic sun? Are you inspired by explorers like Lewis and Clark, Magellan, Sir Edmund Hillary?

If so, you may be interested in joining the Expedition Club.

The object of Expedition Club is to advance the education of its members by providing inspirational and challenging educational expeditions to remote, wild environments, both regionally and internationally, and so promote the development of members’ confidence, teamwork, leadership and spirit of adventure and exploration. Expedition planning and execution is designed to allow club members the opportunity for practical expression of their academic studies at EOU.

The Expedition Club has a goal of sending at least one international expedition every two years and sending at least one regional expedition every year. Expedition locations and activities (e.g. climbing, skiing, paddling, trekking) will be dependent upon the interests and skills of the club members.

The club will meet regularly during the academic year for the purpose of training, planning, and fundraising for future expeditions. It is expected that club members will contribute to the club based on their interests, existing skill sets, and current area of academic study at EOU.

If you are interested in learning more about the Expedition Club or want to become a member, email the Outdoor Program ( or stop by Hoke 102 to chat about explorations near and far!
