Application information for incoming first-year students interested in taking part in the Outdoor Orientation

Overview: Denison Outdoor Orientation offers an opportunity for 48 members of the incoming class and 12 faculty/staff and student leaders to backpack for three days in the wilds of West Virginia. After a day on campus preparing for the trip, participants will journey to West Virginia, where they will spend three days hiking, camping and relaxing. The purpose of this program is to provide students a unique, challenging, and enjoyable transition to life at Denison by forming bonds and friendships with other entering first-years — all while on the trail.
