Adventure LLC


The benefit of living in the Outdoor Adventure LLC (OA LLC) is that students share a common passion for the outdoors and want to learn and practice specific outdoor skills. Students in the OA LLC take a two-credit course together as a community during the fall semester. The course introduces students to the core concepts of outdoor adventure such as environmental ethics, a wide selection of outdoor skills, leadership, teamwork, and outdoor safety. It also includes a weekend wilderness trip designed to allow students to practice the skills learned in class in an experiential environment. Registration for the class is part of summer orientation and is required.

Students who may be interested in the outdoors but are unable to complete the course requirement should consider joining the Outdoor Adventure Thematic Community.


  • Hiking, backpacking, camping in nearby state parks and recreational areas
  • Skiing, snowboarding, and indoor bouldering and wall-climbing
  • Kayaking and horseback riding

Student Quotes

"The thing I like best about living in the Outdoor Adventure LLC are the people; the are all great people who share a love for the outdoors."
  - Dan. D., Terre Haute, IN, Sophomore in Political Science and Economics

"I would recommend the Outdoor Adventure LLC to new students because I have never met a better group of people to spend my freshman year living with. I came in with no outdoor adventure experience and have already learned and experienced so much! Choosing to be a part of the OA LLC was one of the greatest decisions I've made at IU so far."
  -Sophie M., Wilmette, IL, Freshman in Cognitive Science
