The MTOP program is dedicated to leadership, education, teamwork, relationships, and adventure. Outdoor programs are offered to appeal to multiple interests and levels of expertise. From whitewater rafting or kayaking, rock climbing or caving, hiking or backpacking, there is something for YOU!

The climbing wall is open most evenings during the semester, and on-campus clinics are offered periodically to help you develop skills. 

No matter if you are a beginner or experienced leader, our whole goal is to get you outside! Follow us on Instagram to stay in the know!
