The class will be starting in April and ending at some point in May -- applications are due on March 13th (sorry for the late notice, whoops), but if you want more information, email our resident rock guy extraordinaire, Joey DeShane, at

The Outdoors Club will be well-represented at the Underwear Pageant again this year (I heard the guy who did it last year was like, smoking hot), by our new champion, Connor Martin! Cue trumpets, timpanis, tubas, tambourines, and other instruments starting with t. Connor will be strutting his stuff to raise money for the New River Alliance of Climbers, and he needs our support. Money donation is optional, but moral support is what we're going for. If you aren't doing anything on Thursday from 7-9pm, head to the Assembly Room of the Union to show Connor you care (we love you Connor)!

(5) After Spring Break Heads UP

Things are gonna starting heating up after spring break, even if the weather doesn't!

That same weekend, the lovely Miss Jordy will be going down to Franklin WV to go caving. Email her at if you have any questions, concerns, compliments, etc, or if you want to sign up for the trip.


That's all I got, you lovely, lovely people.

See you after break!

Yours Troy-ly
