Student involvement
​​​Adventure Seminars
Located in Finch Fieldhouse, the Adventure Seminars facility is the only one of its kind in mid-Michigan. It is open to the campus community and the public.  Novices are welcome to try their hand at scaling the wall, and experienced climbers are invited to fine-tune their ascension skills. Community groups, organizations, and individuals can reserve the rock-climbing wall or high ropes course for team building programs, climbing workshops, birthday parties, and more.  Open climb hours are held throughout the week during the school year and season passes are available at a discount.  For more information visit the Adventure Center.
Project WILD and Project Learning Tree Workshops
Looking for some professional development opportunities and have a love for nature?  Each semester a Saturday is devoted to environmental education workshops.  Developed initially for teachers, Project WILD and Project Learning Tree are also excellent for non-formal educators, recreation majors, biology students, child-development majors, and others who plan to work with youth.  These hands-on, activity-based workshops teach students environmental education techniques and activities.  Find out ‘How Many Bears Can Live in the Forest’ or play a lively game of ‘Oh Deer’ all while learning how to lead these activities with groups.  For more information contact Lynn Dominguez at
