What’s the best school for outdoor adventure in the Southeast and Mid-Atlantic?

Beginning March 8th, Blue Ridge Outdoors’ Top Adventure College Tournament, sponsored by NROCKS Outdoor Adventures, asks readers to pick their favorites in a 32-school bracket brawl. 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 local opportunities for adventure. Rally students, alumni, and supporters around your school. Vote 1 time per round, and voting for each round ends at 11:59PM. The school receiving the most votes advances to the next round.

Round of 32: Mar 8-21 | Sweet 16: Mar 22-28 | Elite 8: Mar 29- April 4 | Final Four: April 5 -11 | Championship: April 12-18
