Who we are

The Syracuse University Outing Club, founded in 1935, is run by students of Syracuse University and the SUNY College of Environmental Science and Forestry. Membership is open to the entire university community. Our purpose is to promote the enjoyment of our natural environment, and to have a lot of fun in the outdoors.

What we do

We offer weekly trips in:

Hiking – Backpacking – Winter Mountaineering – Rock & Ice Climbing – Horizontal & Vertical Caving – Canoeing – Whitewater Kayaking – Cross-country Skiing – Snowshoeing – Mountain Biking …and more!

NO EXPERIENCE NECESSARY! We offer trips for complete beginners through expert outdoorman. In addition, we also provide all necessary instruction and equipment that you may need (excluding personal clothing) for all of our trips.


Meetings are held every Tuesday at 7:30pm in Hall of Languages room 207.

Our base of operations is the E-Room located on South Campus. Come hang out, outfit for a trip, and learn new skills every Wednesday and Thursday from 7-9pm.
