CEDAR CITY, Utah (ABC4 Utah)- Southern Utah University is competing against 92 other universities to keep their title as “Most Outdoorsy School” in the Nation.
From now until October 15th, SUU is participating in in the Outdoor Nation Campus Challenge. In 2015 the school won the competition, but now they’re back to defend their title. Multiple departments are working together in a campus-wide effort to offer ways for everyone to enter the challenge, get outside, share with their friends and earn point and prizes.
Nikki Koontz, the Assistant Director of Marketing Communication with SUU stopped by the ABC4 studios to talk more about the competition.
Koontz says Students, families, alumni, staff and community members can participate. All you have to do is download the Outdoor Nation App, sign-up for SUU, do an outdoor activity, take photos and then upload it to the app,” She said. “It’s free and easy to do.”
Earlier this month SUU was officially trademarked as the University of the Parks.
