For more information, look for flyers around campus or stop by the Outdoor Recreation Center (at 2600 Children’s Way and behind the new Vanderbilt Recreation and Wellness Center) during ORC rental hours. This is also where the Pre-Trip Meeting takes place.

Trip Refund Policy

If the participant cancels from the trip:

2. The refund depends on when notification is given

  • If more than 30 days in advance, the participant will be issued a full refund.
  • If 30 days or less in advance, the participant is responsible for finding their own replacement and refund. If there is a waiting list, or there are at least a few days prior to the trip, then we will try to help. If no list exists, you are responsible for your own replacement.
