ETSU is an adventure campus and our hometown is an adventure town! The natural beauty of our region makes an incredible backdrop for your university experience. When you come to visit campus, the mountains will greet you. Our 360-acre campus includes the University Woods--part of the Old-Growth Forest Network--where you can hike or bike between classes on our five-mile trail system. The outdoors are a "living classroom" at ETSU--our certified, level 4, Arboretum has more than 200 species of trees. If you want more "outside" in your life--hiking, kayaking, rock climbing, camping, stand-up paddle-boarding--start the adventure of your life as a Buccaneer.
