Rappelling workshop set for October 20 with Campus Recreation


Person rappels down the side of a structure.

If you’ve watched a SWAT team rappel down the side of a building in the movies and thought you wanted to give it a try, here’s your chance.

Join Campus Recreation’s Outdoor Adventure program for an afternoon of fun and adventure on the rappel tower.

“We’ll spend the afternoon learning about the necessary equipment and how to rappel safely,” said Bill James, assistant director for Outdoor and Non-Credit Programs. “There will be plenty of time for you to apply your new skills during our hands-on practice time.”

Register by noon on October 19 at the Student Fitness Center. Cost is $15. This workshop is weather dependent, so please note the alternate date (October 27) when registering. Visit the website or call (309) 438.8427 for more information.
