Get Outside and Get Involved: ON Campus Challenge 2016
The Outdoor Nation Campus Challenge is a 6-week (Sept. 4-Oct. 15) competition among universities and colleges in the U.S. to be the Most Outdoorsy School in America. Wilkes will be challenging 90 other schools this year and we believe that we can win with the help of our alumni. Last year was our first year competing in the challenge and we placed 4th among 57 schools! It's easy to get involved. Sign up and encourage friends, family and neighbors to do as well. Go outside for a walk, run, hike, bird-watch, gardening project, bike, etc. for 30 minutes or more and take pictures of whoever is participating. Then, log-on to the site and enter your activities. Registration begins Aug. 22 and you can learn more here. There is an app available for download on iTunes and the Google App Store.
