Kaleigh Duffy's hands are blistered and bleeding. Beneath her lie dozens of sharp mountain peaks. Her muscles ache in exhaustion, yet she's never felt so proud of an accomplishment.
"The most memorable moment of the trip was when I first got to the top of the mountain while rock climbing," said Duffy, a junior, after attending a trip to Golden, Colo. with UNO's Outdoor Venture Center during her fall semester of 2012.
"The view is so much sweeter after the climb up. It gives you a great sense of accomplishment."
UNO's Outdoor Venture Program, housed in the campus' HPER building, has been hosting reduced price trips to help students acquire outdoor skills and renting camping equipment for several years.
