The OA TripStore is the online signup site for all OA Actitivies.

The TripStore will let you browse all of the upcoming Outdoor Action trips, courses, community service activities, and leader training programs 24 hours a day, 7 days a week from your dorm, office, or a campus cluster. Through the TripStore you can sign up for any of these activities and bill it to your University account.
