New Hampshire boasts some of the most beautiful scenery in New England, so why not take advantage of it? The New Hampshire Outing Club (NHOC) is the oldest and largest organization at UNH that offers off-campus trips to undergraduate students every weekend. Some of the activities that they offer include, backpacking, camping, canoeing, white water rafting, and many more in the White Mountains and throughout other areas of New England. This club is mostly funded by the Student Activity fee that is paid with undergraduate tuition, and prices for the trips include $5 for day trips, $10 for overnight trips, and $15 for weekend (Friday through Sunday) trips. This club is versatile to the needs and experiences of the members. Additionally, most of the gear can be borrowed for free.
If you or someone you know is interested in joining, show up to the signups that are held on the first Tuesday of every month in the Strafford Room in the MUB. If you have questions or would like to speak to someone, the NHOC has an office in room 151 in the MUB. Spending time outdoors ensures not only that you’ll get more exercise, but the sunlight and extra vitamin D will lift your spirits and have you feeling great. Take advantage of this great program offered by UNH and explore what the outdoors of New England has to offer!
