We organize reunions all over the US—join us! Helping out an event is a great opportunity to eat good food, network with other alums, and listen to inspiring speakers. Find new friends, climbing partners, and maybe even a job.
Put a NOLS sticker on your car, laptop, water bottle, or notebook. Display a NOLS flag or wear a hat—and share your story when the questions start. NOLS has over 280,000 grads, so proudly showing our logo helps foster connections.
Record and listen to stories of learning, leadership, and laughter in the wilderness. Remember that moment on the trail when you didn’t think you could do it—and then you did? Or the peak ascent that you still think about daily, years later?
Share your favorite NOLS memories on our StoryCorps Community, a digital platform for swapping stories and building community with grads around the world.
