Our Grads

NOLS has over 75,000 graduates who come from all over the globe and all walks of life.

The NOLS adventure isn't over when you take off your pack for the last time, or put down your paddle—for many NOLS grads the end of their course is just the beginning of a life inspired by a NOLS education.

Meet a few.
