Students looking to have fun outdoors during the holiday weekend should look no further than the Arkansas Tech Outdoor Connection.
Located in the Office of Intramurals and Recreational Sports in the University Commons Clubhouse, Outdoor Connection offers kayaks, mountain bikes and tents free for students to rent.
Last year, more than 400 students took advantage of the free equipment rentals, but Coordinator of Intramurals and Outdoor Connection Grant Watts says he expects to see an increase this year as there are more students on campus.
The office is open from 9 a.m.-4 p.m. To check out any equipment, students must present a valid Tech I.D. card.
Mountain bikes checked out on Monday or Tuesday are due back Friday, and those checked out Wednesday through Friday they are due back Monday.
A 48 hour advance request for rental is required for kayaks. Those checked out Monday through Wednesday are due back Thursday, and kayaks checked out Thursday or Friday are due back Monday.
Camping tents also require a 48 hour advance request for rental. Those checked out Monday through Wednesday are due back Thursday, and tents checked out Thursday or Friday are due back Monday.
