Pacific University Outback



Welcome to Pacific Outback. The Outback is a division within Student Life at Pacific University. Our mission is to provide off-campus adventures of the highest quality that inspire, excite, refresh and educate. We seek to offer both urban and wilderness experiences that compliment the campus community’s goals of experiential learning and healthy, sustainable fun.


Here you will find information such as a schedule of trips, an introduction to our rental program, useful links and trip descriptions. We encourage feedback if you have any questions or ideas.



Spring News:

Campus Campout:

For the first time ever, Outback will be hosting its first Campus Campout! This event is open to all, and will take place in Trombley Square. It will be set up just like a campout in the wilderness: campfires, s'mores, tent camping, and games! Stop by after the Earth Day concert on April 19th for this FREE event!


The Whitewater Kayaking Series is looking for participants! If you are interested, more information is available under then "Schedule of Events" tab to the left.
