WSU's Outdoor Recreation Center has been introducing Cougs to the wild since 1971 - that's 50 years of providing wilderness-based recreational trips, leadership training, equipment rentals, special events, and other opportunities for WSU students and community members. Chris Tapfer, who started the program, will share tales of early adventures, how the ORC started, and what kept the program moving forward during his tenure. Join us as we celebrate with light refreshments, ORC swag, and stories. Global Campus will be broadcasting his presentation online if you cannot join us in-person.
