Since 1994, the Poplar Ridge Challenge Course program has provided unique and engaging team building opportunities to participants from a wide variety of organizations, businesses, and work teams for the University and surrounding communities. In contrast to the common reference, “ropes course”, most of our initiatives and simulations involve more problem-solving skills than physical strength and conditioning. Many of our programs utilize our unique outdoor challenge course located in a beautiful wooded site on Grounds. The challenge course contains dozens of activities at ground level and six different high ropes elements. Indoor programming options are also available. Programs typically run for either half-days (up to 4 hours) or full days (5-8 hours) and can typically be scheduled any day of the week year round.
