Now Launching the 2015 Top Adventure College Tournament

get more from BRO


March Madness ain’t just about basketball. Beginning March 9, Blue Ridge Outdoors’ Top Adventure College Tournament gives the power to our readers to determine which school will be deemed the “Best Outdoor School” in the Southeast and Mid-Atlantic. 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 will battle 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.

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 9. Each week, winners advance to the next round of the tournament.

Round of 32: March 9 -15
Sweet 16: March 16 – 22
Elite 8: March 23 – 29
Final Four: March 30 – April 5
Championship: April 6 – April 12
