Outdoor Leadership

The Outdoor Leadership class is a course where students can focus on advancing their own leadership abilities and obtain the skills that can be used to successfully navigate and enjoy the natural outdoor environment. The students take part in experiential learning on campus and throughout the natural surroundings of Hokkaido. Each year these experiences include an overnight hiking trip, snowshoeing to a mountain hut, and an all-day outdoor rock climbing event.
