Welcome to the OCVT!

   The Outdoor Club at Virginia Tech (OCVT) is a diverse group of outdoor enthusiasts comprised of undergraduate, and graduate students and other members of the Blacksburg community. The goal of the club is to get our members outside and active both physically and socially. OCVT strives to spread knowledge of the local area, to teach safe and responsible outdoor practices, to volunteer time to keep our section of the Appalachian Trail maintained and most importantly to have fun while doing it. If you're interested feel free to read more about us and if you like what you see join up!
