Do you have plans for fall break? With Outdoor Program, you can go on an adventure to Moab, Utah, and get back in time to spend Thanksgiving with family and friends.

From Nov. 17 to 20, explore the Arches and Canyonlands National Parks, and experience the magic of these natural landmarks. Your days will be packed with hiking, climbing and mountain biking, and no experience is necessary to register for the trip. Here are three reasons to go:

Take a break from your everyday routine

Fall break is a great time to get away, de-stress and make new memories. A short break can boost your productivity and set you up for success during the rest of the semester.

Meet new people

Traveling, camping and exploring with others is a great way to meet new friends and get to know them on another level. Seeing some of the most beautiful parts of America with your travel companions is just icing on the cake!

Outdoor adventure

When you're out in nature and miles away from civilization, you can feel more in tune with yourself and your environment. Spending five days with Mother Nature will give you an opportunity to relax and appreciate the natural beauty of our world.

Students who sign up before Nov. 1 will receive a 10 percent discount on the trip. The regular registration deadline is Nov. 12. There is also a pre-trip meeting on Nov. 17 from 6 to 7:30 p.m. in The Rec’s Outdoor Program classroom. To learn more about the Moab fall break trip, watch a video or visit the Outdoor Program online.
