Outing Club Petitions to Be Allowed to Go Outside

May 1, 2018

In response to Penn State University’s recent decision to disband the school’s 98-year-old Outing Club, more than 3,000 people have signed an online petition asking the university reconsider and to allow the club to continue sponsoring hiking, canoeing and camping trips. Following a risk assessment of 76 student sport and club organizations, the university decided earlier this month that the Outing Club, the Nittany Grotto Caving Club and the Nittany Divers SCUBA Club no longer would be allowed to sponsor student outings because the activities are too risky.
