Ask a Thruhiker

PSOC had its October 16th meeting downtown at Appalachian Outdoors where a panel of eager thruhikers revealed the truth about long distance hikes. Almost all of the thruhikers hiked different trails and had different experiences. Their insight was extremely valuable to a club full of aspiring long distance hikers. It was also amazing to see some of the local non-student community at this event!


Who are we?

The Penn State Outing Club, PSOC for short, is an entirely student-run organization that is dedicated to experiencing the outdoors in every possible capacity.  PSOC was founded in 1920, making it one of the oldest clubs at Penn State.  Still running strong today, PSOC club members organize backpacking, canoeing, kayaking, hiking, and trail maintenance trips from the Catskills to California.  PSOC is dedicated to helping the community through extension programs at Shaver’s Creek and the surrounding trail maintenance groups.
