Cuthbert- Some students at Andrew College are pursuing a new and exciting degree.

At least nine students are working toward an Associates degree in Outdoor Leadership. This is the first year the program has been offered.

Students hope to use the degree to get jobs in guiding and instructing outdoor camps and activities. Students will get hands on experience during many trips planned in the near future. Director of Outdoor Leadership, John Bowen explains they will go "backpacking, coastal kayaking, canoing, caving, all sorts of things. We plan to do a lot of trips next semester. Hopefully around four or five."

The program focuses on safety, planning and risk management. The college also offers scholarships for students in the program.
