In this installment of Because of You, Dr. Jim Campbell and Sandy Jackson recount the incredible program they were a part of called the Outdoor Semester In the Rockies.

While OSR no longer exists, it has very clearly changed the lives of the students and faculty that were involved, and teaches valuable lessons even today.
