About us

ongoing members

SMUXploration Crew (SMUX) is a CCA student constituent body in SMUSA that represents the outdoor and adventure wing of SMU. Established in 2000, we are a tight-knit family of 6 teams – Biking, Diving, Kayaking, Skating, Trekking and Xseed.

We offer a wide range of outdoor adventure activities which spans from beginner-friendly explorations to more advanced expeditions. Both members and non-members can take part in signature events and activities hosted by the 6 teams.

SMUX, pronounced as “SMUCKS”, is not to be confused with SMU-X, the experiential learning framework.
