The Odyssey High Ropes Course opened on Sept. 24 and offers more team-building exercises at the Venture Out Complex.

COLUMBIA — MU Venture Out hopes to use a new high ropes course for team building activities.

The Odyssey High Ropes Course, which was built in summer 2013, includes two obstacles that require teamwork to complete.

Sarah Hansen, a member of the MU Comparative Medicine Program, participated in an event at the course on Monday.

“I had been here for an event while I was a graduate student last year, and this course is much more team-oriented,” Hansen said.

The Odyssey High Ropes Course, which opened on Sept. 24, can hold up to 50 people at one time, according to the website for MU Venture Out. The new course accompanies Venture Out’s two towers and its low ropes course.

Supervising editor is Richard Webner.
