On the Loose holds raucous Shindigs every other Tuesday at 9 o'clock to bring together the five-college outdoor community. Shindigs are the time to share stories from past outings and to discuss plans for future trips over delicious home-cooked backcountry snacks. Here we also share pictures, elect the OTL Badass of the Week, and rappel off the balcony. We hope to see your smiling face this Tuesday!

To be reminded about each of our Shindigs, subscribe to the OTL Mailing List.

Things We Do

We do many things.

We maintain an extensive guidebook with information on our popular destinations. If you have an inkling of interest in the outdoors, we can keep you busy. Students have been known to quit their varsity sports for OTL.
