With the popularity of outdoor recreation in our community, and the Savannah River at our feet, the opportunity for students to get involved outdoors is a win-win!
Georgia State Park Passes
Augusta University Students will be able to rent a Georgia State Park Pass. These passes can be rented for up to one (1) week, but must be returned by 1:00 PM on the agreed date. Please visit the Wellness Center Front Desk to rent these passes.
Kayak Rentals -
Augusta University offers a variety of sit-on kayaks that can get you started on a trip down our historical Savannah River!
