“One thing that really stuck out on this trip was that no matter the person’s background, we are all drawn to nature,” Clayton Sheehan, assistant director of programs for University Recreation, said. “Each student took advantage of the trip, and we tried to see as much as we could.

“Even when it meant getting up at 5:30am to see the sun rise over the Grand Canyon.”

The students ranged from 17-23 years old and included an exchange student from France, a military veteran, two soccer players and a high schooler who attends Middle College.

 

APSU’s Govs Outdoors, a program through University Recreation, offers about 10 trips every semester to members of the APSU Foy Fitness and Recreation Center, including Austin Peay students, faculty and staff and members of the surrounding community. And the trips come at a great value. The Grand Canyon trip was only $450.00.

Remaining trips this semester include Rock Island State Park Camping Weekend, March 23rd-24th – $35.00; Southern Illinois Outdoor Climbing Trip, March 29th-31st – $55.00; Montgomery Bell State Park Sampler, April 6th – $20.00; Cumberland Trail Backpacking Trip, April 12th-14th – $55.00; and King and Queen’s Bluff Earth Day Trail Cleanup and Climb, April 20th – free.
