Enjoy some time away from your books and head outdoors! The Campus Outdoor Recreational Experience (C.O.R.E.) at Edinboro offers activities, off-campus excursions and equipment rentals to help you stay active, challenge yourself and have fun whatever the season.

What is C.O.R.E.?

The Campus Outdoor Recreational Experience mission is to provide quality recreational activities to the PennWest Edinboro student body regardless of skill level or ability. The primary focus is to teach students of all backgrounds, who may never have participated in such activities, the skills and confidence necessary to complete the activity in such a manner that they will continue to participate and challenge themselves in the future.


Use of outdoor equipment is offered free of charge to students, faculty and staff. Alumni and community members must pay a rental fee. We rent:

  • Rollerblades
  • Cross-country skis
  • Camping equipment
  • Snowshoes
  • Cornhole boards
  • And much more!

Renters are responsible for any damage due to mistreatment or excessive use or uses not recommended for that item. Items must be returned clean, dry and on time or fees will be assessed.
