OAC Mission Statement

The primary purpose of the Outdoor Adventure Club is to provide regular outdoor
activities, promote interest in the outdoor activities, and encourage the practice
of limited impact outdoor ethics for Auburn University students. These goals shall
be achieved through club meetings and activities, such as those on the proposed
events list.
The OAC is the perfect organization. Social Interaction + Extreme Fun = Unforgettable. College is about meeting new people, discovering new places and ideas, and
engaging in brand-new experiences all while having a blast! Rather than restrict
yourself to just chilling with people of a certain major, sex, hobby, or political
affiliation, branch out and explore the rich social diversity of the OAC! Meet girls
and guys from all different majors, states, and grade-levels while having fun
exploring all the beauty and excitement the world has to offer as you create
memories that will last a lifetime!
No Commitments. No time, money, or participation commitments are required. You only go on
the trips you want to go on. If you have a tough semester, you don't have to go
on any trips. If next semester you have tons of free time, you can go on ALL of
the trips if you so desire. We only have 1 hour-long meeting a month, and even
that is optional! Affordable for Everyone. Dues are only $35 for the entire year, one of the lowest out of over 300
campus organizations! Upon paying dues, you also receive a free OAC Nalgene,
car magnet, and sticker, free rentals of anything in our club's massive outdoor
gear collection, discounts at local outdoors stores like True Adventure Sports and
Mountain High Outfitters, and priority over non-members for trips. Most trips are
free and the ones that aren't (such as the skydiving and 4-day snowboarding trip)
are severely subsidized through our organization's exclusive connections with
outdoors companies and ability to acquire unbeatable group rates. No Experience Required. None of the awesome trips we lead require any sort of previous experience
or minimum skill level. In fact, most people who participate in our trips are doing
that activity for the very first time in their lives. Our trip leaders are
always masters of the activity they're planning, so they'll be able to show you the
ropes and help you to become an expert yourself if you so desire. If you've ever
wanted to try out something new or simply gain more experience in a particular
outdoor activity, the OAC is the perfect way to do so! Unparalleled Adventures. The OAC is not a one trick pony. We are not the sailing club, the
equestrian association, the rowing team, the ultimate frisbee group, that
philanthropist sorority you heard about, or even the environmental impact
organization. We are ALL of those organizations and more! Every year we have
done a trip that has never been offered to Auburn students before and we plan to
continue that tradition. Whether it's skydiving, snowboarding, caving,
backpacking, rock climbing, ziplining, whitewater rafting, or simply overnight
camping, the OAC offers something for everyone and for all skill levels! Still aren't convinced? Hear what our members are saying by checking us out on Facebook! Read about us in The Plainsman AND The Corner News War Eagle! Derrick Stone OAC President
