The ORC helps students enjoy nature

The Outdoor Resource Center is where outdoor equipment, such as tubes, tents and canoes, can be bought or rented. Items can be rented for 24-hour periods of time.

The ORC is located under the BYU-Idaho Stadium and is open Monday 8 a.m. to 6 p.m., Tuesday through Friday 9 a.m to 7 p.m., and Saturdays 7 a.m. to 7 p.m.

“The Rexburg ORC is the mecca of all things outdoors,” said Carsten Haueter, the area director of Outdoor Activities and a senior studying psychology.

Lance Brudnicki, a sophomore studying computer science, said that the ORC is less expensive than anywhere else.

Jared Nichols, a freshman studying business, said he had no idea what the ORC was at first, but he found out about it through other people.

“Most people hear about [it] by word of mouth,” Brudnicki said.

Brudnicki said that anybody can use the ORC, not just classes on campus or big gros.

“It’s usually more of the outdoorsy kind of people,” said Brudnicki.

The purpose of the ORC is stated on the BYU-I website.

“Our mission is to help you get out and enjoy the outdoors at an affordable price. The Outdoor Resource Center is committed to our vision of giving people access to the outdoors. Whether you’re looking to rent some big equipment or just looking for an idea of where to plan your next outing, we have everything you need to make Southeast Idaho your own backyard.”

According to the BYU-I website equipment can also be purchased from the ORC in addition to the available rentals.

The ORC can be contacted by phone at 208-496-7337 or email at orc@byui.edu.
