The Upstate ropes course offers challenges that create experiences related to personal, professional and team growth. Through our Group Dynamics Challenge Course or the High Ropes Course, we can accomplish almost any development or team building related goal that your group wishes.

  • Management Teams
  • New Member Orientations
  • Churches
  • Youth Groups
  • School Field Trips
  • Departmental Training
  • Staff Retreats

Our course minimum is eight individuals. We also have the capacity to operate with very large groups as well. For more information, contact Mark Ritter or fill out our request form.

Bike Share

Enjoy riding a bike and having convenient transportation around campus!  In partnership with Partners for Active Living, USC Upstate is proud to offer the Bike Share program. Bikes are available to run errands, to grab lunch, to travel from class to class or to get some fresh air and exercise.

Bikes are free to rent and are available at the Wellness Center on a first-come, first-serve basis. Also included in the rental package is a free lock and helmet.
