Many students are attracted to CSU Monterey Bay because of the ample opportunities for outdoor recreation on and near campus. The university’s Outdoor Recreation program is thriving, with students participating in outings and activities such as backpacking, camping, rock climbing, mountain biking, skiing, kayaking, surfing and stand-up paddleboarding. Here is a collection of photos from recent trips to Big Sur, Yosemite and Pinnacles national parks, Sugar Bowl Resort and the Ventana Wilderness.
