LOWER DESCHUTES RIVER WHITEWATER RAFTING ADVENTURE
This 50-mile, multi-day whitewater rafting trip explores the Lower Deschutes River in central Oregon.

DATES: September 18-22
STUDENT LIMIT: 12

“These trips are an excellent and fun way for incoming freshmen to meet other students, learn about EOU and the surrounding area, make new friends and start building a community,” said Michael Hatch, Outdoor Program coordinator. “East Tracks also offer fantastic opportunities for personal growth and development, and will help ease the transition into college life.”
