Outdoor Recreation Club

The ODRC is a collaboration of students inviting the entire MIIS community to enjoy the many opportunities for outdoor fun in the greater Monterey Bay region. We lead several outdoor activities throughout each semester including hiking, camping, kayaking, rock climbing, running, cycling, surfing, and more. We even provide affordable equipment rentals and workshops to help YOU enjoy the great outdoors on your own time. Last but not least, we lead the First-semester Outdoor Orientation Trip (FOOT) prior to the start of each semester to introduce incoming students to MIIS outside the classroom. Outdoor adventures are a great way for new students to bond and create lasting memories.

The Feminine MIIStique (Women's Soccer)

We want to give female MIIS students an opportunity to play soccer in a low-cost, low-commitment environment. Of course, girls are encouraged to try out for the coed team, but many feel that it is too competitive, expensive, and time consuming. We allow girls of all skill levels to participate, and our main objective is to offer everyone a chance to take a study break and have fun.
