Glendale Community College has a large campus at 59th Avenue and Olive Avenue in Glendale, Arizona. More than 18,000 students attend the College each year. Set in the middle of the Greater Phoenix Metropolitan Area, the campus offers urban orienteering challenges. While there is no open desert or forest in the area, the campus is a good place to practice basic navigation skills. It's also a nice place close to home to get some experience in another common orienteering event - the urban sprint.
