This organization is designed to give TU students an opportunity to get off campus and Get Outdoors! We focus on helping students appreciate and explore the outdoors around the Tulsa area as well as around the nation!
What we do
TU Treks is designed to create an accessible outdoor leadership experience for all students. Basically, we’re trying to help students get be more active outdoors. But we do some indoor stuff too! Laser tag, rock climbing, hiking, kayaking- and if you have an idea for a trip, let us know!
For our annual Spring Break trips we’ve traveled to North Carolina, Tennessee, Arizona, and Colorado. On these trips, students enjoy hiking, white water rafting, horseback riding, eating at incredible local restaurants, and one year, we even did a zipline tour through the forest! The Spring Break trip is truly the highlight of the year for students.
TU Treks has grown our collection of equipment over the years, but we are still accumulating various types including, tents, stoves, ropes, sleeping bags, packs, harnesses, etc. We still ask students to bring equipment if they possess it. But don’t let that worry you though, because if you don’t have your own equipment…we’ll find some for you.
Many of our activities are free, however, some do require a fee. All trip costs vary and include such things as expenses for food, gas, tolls, and equipment rental. Trips which tend to be more technically challenging, require more equipment or are multi-day, tend to cost more. The program will often subsidize the cost of many of these trips in order to lower the overall cost to the participants.
