From the Blue Ridge Mountains in the upstate to the breathtaking beaches along the coastline, South Carolina is a playground for outdoor enthusiasts. Care for an introduction? Through our Paladin Outdoor Program, we offer new students the opportunity to experience our home state’s natural beauty—and a chance to meet your new classmates in a fun environment.
The adventure begins when participants are allowed to move into their new residence halls before their classmates. Then, the fun begins! Sea kayaking. Ziplining through the forests. Rafting down river rapids. Whether you’re an avid outdoorsman or new to the great outdoors, there’s something for you. The program ends in time for you to join other new students for move-in day and O-Week activities.
Experience a new adventure by registering for one of our optional trips.
