RMCAD Outdoor Adventure Club's mission is to get out with our peers and engage with the beautiful Colorado outdoors.

We invite everybody to participate and join in order to create a community of outdoor enthusiasts at RMCAD.
The Studio is a collaborative establishment that rewards members for individual achievement by working effectively in a dynamic team environment. It is broken down into a Triforce of opportunity for both campus and online students at RMCAD. The first being our production team, they closely emulate how industry environment works on a game through all stages of production. Next is our competition team, people who like to dabble in specific challenges offered by websites such as CGSociety, Polycount, Eat3D, WorldOfLevelDesign, and many more. Last but not least are the Freelancers who are the silent hero's of our guild. They possess particular talents that members from the other two groups can call upon in times of need.
We acknowledge those who are reliable by having the Elder Council distribute experience points for their accomplishments. These experience points work towards each persons ability to "level up" which helps them vie for fame on the guild leaderboard. Each level also brings them commendations that range from titles, branching skill trees, etc. The scope of how we reward our members is constantly evolving as our guild grows in power.

In addition to this goal, it is the clubs intention to create a thriving community of photographers from all walks of life and skills who can assist one another through information sharing, shoot assistance, and critiques with a goal of making better photographers of us all.
The Underground Cafe is pretty great. They have a great selection of food, snacks, and drinks. They are willing to work with you if you have food allergies. The best thing is that they are student run, so you can even apply to work in the kitchen. However, sometimes a five dollar sandwich isn't the best because you're on a tight budget. Most professors will have a fridge in their office, so sometimes you can bring items to put in the fridge. There's a shopping center just up the road where you can grab food, or go shopping in Walmart. There's also a few Mexican restaurants and take out places right across the street. During the summer, sometimes the class comes together to bring in food, especially in the morning. There's fun BBQ's and other goodies that show up on campus all the time. When there's food on campus an email is sent out.Read More
RMCAD itself has a great cafe with really unique and healthy options, however it can be a little pricey if you are eating there every day. The dorm community requires a food plan you pay in advance, so you get a pass to the cafeteria and order whatever you want, all you can eat. Not all their options were very healthy though so it can be tough if you're trying to stick to a diet. Dorm rooms don't allow hot plates, only microwaves so again healthy options become challenging. The school is at least located very close to a Natural Grocers, a Safeway, and a Whole Foods so there are those better choices, but the restaurants in the area are mostly fast food and low grade Mexican restaurants.Read More
