Outdoor Pursuits

Outdoor Pursuits




Outdoor Pursuits (Ehringhaus) is about pursuing health and well-being through connecting with other Tar Heels in the outdoors. From high impact adventure to low key events, we’re here to foster opportunities to join together and recreate, find balance, and greater connection with ourselves, each other, and the world around us.  Open to all experience levels and outdoor interests.  We aim to be as inclusive as possible as we journey together throughout the year. Programs will be designed through a partnership with Carolina Adventures. You can find examples of activities here

What is an RLP?

Carolina’s Residential Learning Programs give students a unique, inclusive residential learning experience that connects classroom learning with residence life. Students enjoy all the usual advantages of living on campus in a residence hall, with the added benefit of living among a group that shares academic goals and interests.

Through student, faculty and staff partnerships, and educational and cultural programs, active involvement in a Residential Learning Program allows you to broaden your perspectives and understanding of the world around you. This holistic approach complements classroom experiences and lays the foundation for you to become better prepared to succeed in life beyond college.
