West Virginia University's Adventure WV group will offer a trip this fall exclusively for WVU military veterans called Adventure Veterans Fall Break.

Adventure Veterans, a program of Adventure WV, connects student veterans, critical faculty and staff members, as well as the University and the state of West Virginia to foster student success. The program is designed to support veteran success at WVU through a multi-day adventure experience and opportunities to stay involved throughout the remainder of the semester.

The trip is a four-day, three-night camping event at the New River Gorge Oct. 12-15. Participants will rock climb, hike to scenic overlooks, zip over the forest floor on a canopy/zip tour and raft down one of the state's wild and scenic rivers.

All programs are fee of cost for WVU military veteran students, and no previous experience is required to participate.

Ten spots are available on a first-come, first-serve basis for next month's trip.  For details or to register, visit http://adventureorientation.wvu.edu/our_programs/adventure-veterans/freshman.
