Athens, OH 24 October 2013 – The rock climbing wall here at Ohio University may just seem like just another rock climbing wall at any other school, but it really is not. See, people who aren’t regulars at this second home of mine may seem to miss out on the community we have settled closely in the Ping Center. Friends of all ages and years of school come together and have a great time together and work out and rock climb.


Sometimes school gets stressful, and when it does there is always a cushiony place to fall into, and it’s not that rubber padding at the bottom of the wall. In fact, it’s the people who are there for you the entire way up that plastic rock climbing hold covered wall. I have to say that most of my friends outside of my engineering courses have been made here, and they are all wonderful.


Here at Outdoor Pursuits, there is not only a rock climbing wall. There are plenty of hidden adventures any student can go on if they’d like. There’s anything from back-country backpacking trips to canoeing adventures to even rock climbing expeditions. For anyone who would like to get their fix of outdoor adventures while still managing to be successful in school, Outdoor Pursuits is the place to go.
