Recreational opportunities for all

Recreational opportunities for all

By John Boren

Did you know that CSU Pueblo has a program for students, faculty and community members? Well, CSU Pueblo does. They have a program called Outdoor Pursuits (OP), and it is a program that organizes outdoor activities as well as offers equipment rentals.

There is a limit to how much equipment is located at the ThunderWolf Recreation Center, so everything is first come, first served. Getting access to all this equipment is relatively easy too. First, the fee per semester is $40 for students, $60 for faculty and alumni and $80 for community members. Once a member, there is a one-time fee per item, and they are as follows: $15 for students, $25 for faculty and alumni and $35 for community members.
