Warrior Whitewater Adventure

As an incoming freshman, the Warrior Whitewater Adventure provides you an exhilarating and unforgettable experience as you take adventure to a new level and tackle some of the best rapids in this area. As a new student, you will be able to establish friendships with other participants as you take advantage of a one-of-a-kind experience.  This trip also provides opportunities for you to develop leadership skills through problem-solving, communication, and teamwork.

The rafting trip will take place on Monday, August 18, 2014 and we will be traveling up to the Nantahala. Even for novice rafters, this will be a great experience for you. The Nantahala is one of America’s top destinations for whitewater rafting. The river provides many fantastic views with calm waters at certain sections for those that want to relax, and sections of rapids for the adventurer in all of us.
