A Celebration of Adventure

On the weekend of March 17, 2018 faculty, staff, students, alumni and community members honored and visited with Outdoor Pursuits co-founder and Professor Emeritus of Exercise Science Dolph Kuss as part of Outdoor Pursuits’ 40th anniversary.

About Dolph Kuss

When Dolph Kuss first arrived in Durango in 1953, he says he was "one of the few people other than cattle people who'd ever go into what is now the Weminuche Wilderness Area. I'd come back and people would ask me, 'What did it look like up there?'" Kuss says. Thanks to Kuss and a band of followers, students at Fort Lewis College today don’t have to ask those kinds of questions. Join us for a look at the life and legacy of Dolph Kuss as FLC's Outdoor Pursuits celebrates it's 40th year of powering adventure!
