Best Outdoor School

BRACKET BRAWL: WHICH OUTDOOR SCHOOL IS THE BEST IN THE BLUE RIDGE?

March Madness ain’t just about basketball. Beginning March 9, Blue Ridge Outdoors’ Top Adventure College Tournament asks readers to pick the winners. Colleges and universities meet in head-to-head matchups in a 32-school bracket. In each contest, the school receiving the most votes advances to the next round.

Larger schools with over 10,000 students go head-to-head on one side of the bracket, while smaller schools with fewer than 10,000 students square off on the other side. The two division winners face off in a David-meets-Goliath championship to determine the regions’ best outdoor school.
