Campus Sustainability Month!

Outdoor Nation Campus Challenge
Now through October 15, 2016

Sign up for your chance to win some terrific prizes and outdoor gear and help CSU, Chico reach #1!
The Outdoor Nation Campus Challenge is about school communities and student bodies joining together to see who can get the most people outside and active. It's a Mother Nature meets March Madness-style competition where 90 schools from across the country will go head-to-head over six weeks. The school that gets the most people outdoors will win the National Outdoor Championship. We will also be recognizing the Outsider of the Year, the individual across all schools who logs the most outdoor activities, and the most Outdoorsy Person, the individual on each campus that logs the most outdoor activities for their school.
