BRO’s Bracket Brawl
What’s the best outdoor school in the Southeast and Mid-Atlantic? Beginning March 19, Blue Ridge Outdoors’ Top Adventure College Tournament, sponsored by ENO Hammocks, 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 (more than 5,000 students) go head-to-head on one side of the bracket, while smaller schools 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.
The initial 32 colleges and universities were selected for their outdoor clubs and curricula, their commitment to outdoor and environmental initiatives, the quality of their outdoor athletes and programs, and their opportunities for adventure.
Will your alma mater take the tournament crown? Rally students, alumni, and supporters around your college or university. Voting begins March 19 at contests.blueridgeoutdoors.com. Voting ends at 9 a.m. Monday of each week.
