SOP - Sewanee Outing Program

The Sewanee Outing Program (SOP) gives students at the University of the South the chance to explore the splendid outdoor environment of Sewanee's Domain, the greater Tennessee region, and wilderness areas across the U.S. On our trips, students have fun and are afforded the opportunity to learn valuable leadership and technical skills while gaining a greater appreciation for the natural world around them. We'd love for you to join us on an upcoming trip!
