Attending SUUSI 2024

SO YOU WANT TO JOIN SUUSI 2024! (Or are thinking about it…)

We are excited about you joining us! 

SUUSI has plenty of activities for all ages and all interests. The most important advice we can give you is pace yourself. The week of SUUSI  is a marathon, not a sprint. Make sure you have enough time in your schedule for breaks, naps and meals. Drink plenty of water!

Each day, you can find an amazing array of things to do, including worship, workshops, nature trips, and meals. If you’re in the mood to socialize, find others at Community Time, the Common Ground Café or the Pair-a-Dice game room. Pehaps you want to dance the night away. You will find live music in a variety of venues throughout the day and night, and of course you can go shopping in the SUUSI store and the Artisans’ Bazaar. Or maybe you’d rather sit and read around campus.  It is all available for you.

The SUUSI catalog includes outdoor adventures, board game play, workshops, arts and crafts how-tos and so much more!

Online registration is open and will continue until SUUSI starts.  However, the early bird registration discount is only available until May 1.

Sign up for SUUSI NUUS to keep up to date.


This timeline will be updated as information becomes available for SUUSI 2024:


Registration will open in April. SUUSI uses an online registration system called SOLIS, which can be accessed here for account creation.  Registering and also paying as early as possible will be important this year because of Radford's requirement for a half down payment by May 1.  Please help us by registering and, if you can, paying by May 1.

Our catalog went live April 2024 on as a fully virtual format with up-to-date information about SUUSI 2024 programs and events.  This catalog will be updated with new events and offerings as they become available.

For our new SUUSI-ites, our Newcomer Coordinator would be delighted to talk with you about SUUSI and answer any questions you might have. Reach out at


We think SUUSI costs compare favorably with other week-long vacation options. Your SUUSI registration cost includes housing and food for the week, as well as many activities. If you can’t afford to attend SUUSI, however, you do have options:

  • Apply to be on staff. SUUSI is an all-volunteer organization. Instead of being paid, our staff members work in exchange for a reduction in their registration and housing fees. You can work part-time or full-time at SUUSI.
  • Apply for a SUUSIship. SUUSI offers scholarships to individuals and families who would otherwise not be able to afford to attend. You may apply for a SUUSIship through SOLIS when you register. If you know you will need a SUUSIship, it’s best to apply early, as funds are limited.


Many workshops have fees. SUUSI strives to price workshops reasonably while making sure that the price covers the expenses.

You are able to use the drop/add feature in SOLIS during initial registration and any time after initial registration to add workshops (or nature trips) that still have space.  During SUUSI, you can continue to use the drop/add feature in SOLIS, and you can also add or drop workshops during Sunday check-in or during the week at the SUUSI Office.

    No cash refunds are given for dropped workshops after the completion of SUUSI check-in on Sunday, July 21. If you drop a workshop using SOLIS or through the SUUSI Office at least 24 hours before the start of the workshop, you will receive SUUSI credit toward another workshop or nature trip. This credit is only redeemable during the current SUUSI.

      For filled classes. SUUSI does not maintain waiting lists, but we have watch lists. If someone does drop a workshop and you are on the watch list, you will get an automated email letting you know that the workshop has had someone drop. That spot is now first come first serve regardless of the watch list. 

      Nature Adventures

      During registration, please also reserve your spots in the nature offerings. 

      Check the difficulty rating for your trip below each description and in the legend at the beginning of each Nature program section. Please consider the level of difficulty and evaluate your current capabilities before registering for any Nature trip. Trip difficulty ratings are there for your safety, and the Nature staff have devoted a great deal of time, expertise, and attention to evaluating each trip’s requirements to afford every participant the best experience possible. 

      If you have specific physical limitations or need more information to determine whether you possess the abilities needed for an activity before SUUSI, please contact Nature staff at At SUUSI, visit the Nature table at check-in or the Nature Tent/Office during the week.

      Anyone under a physician’s care should consult with their physician before pre-registering for an activity. Please notify your trip leader of any limitations before leaving the Nature Tent.  If you need one-on-one assistance to participate, your support person is welcome to come along as long as they also are registered for the trip.

      If the SUUSI Nature program cancels a trip the fee will be refunded to you or you may donate the fee to SUUSI. Refunds are not given to people who don’t show up, arrive at the Nature Tent late or arrive without their required equipment.

      If you cancel your Nature trip at least 24 hours in advance, a credit can be issued to be used for another Nature trip, workshop, or activity during the current SUUSI.
