Online registration is currently Available.

You may also register in person at the Outdoor Pursuits service desk in the Ping Center
during regular operating hours. 

NOTE:  Outdoor Pursuits has gone through a change in the registration process.  In previous years groups would be able to purchase multiple tickets to a trip all at once.  However currently this is not the case.  In order to streamline the process on our end participants will need to individually be registered for trips.  This means that non-OU students will need to create an account here, and current OU students will simply need to use their Ohio Login (same login for their myOHIO account). 

If you have any questions regarding the adventure of your choice, Please contact David Roth at ­PH: 740-597-1485 ­ ­or ­ ­ ­ ­dr459913@ohio.edu.
