Date(s) - Wed, Sep. 27
5:00 pm - 5:45 pm



Imagine this, that you’re camping during spring break 3 miles from the mainland, on North Carolina’s remote coastal Bear island, responsible for 8 students and 2 other junior staff members. The weather has been perfect but tomorrow morning a huge storm with 25 mph winds and heavy lightning is expected to develop. And tomorrow is your last day; time to head home. What do you do?

Student Outdoor Leadership Expeditions (SOLE) is the most in-depth, long term leadership development program on campus. And the most fun. It is unlike any other course or training program you ever had.

SOLE is a 25+ day training program in rock climbing, whitewater kayaking/rafting, mountain biking, paddleboarding, leadership, and teaching. Each course ends with the 7-8 day Culmination Expedition. You will plan, organize and run Culmination, using everything you learned in the course to get your group through miles of class III rapids, setup camp, and deal with ‘hangry’ peers.

Learn more about SOLE in person during this interest meeting, meet your instructors and other candidates. 

Visit the SOLE website for more details and photos of what you’ll do and learn.

Interest Meeting is in TRECS Classroom 228 – second level of TRECS, next to the running track.
