Each year in August, 125-150 first-year students arrive on campus early to make friends, learn about Colgate and get a head start on their Colgate experience. Living and traveling with a small group of 8-12 first-year students and 2-3 highly trained leaders, you’ll work together to hike, paddle, climb, or bike through stunning New York wilderness. No previous experience is needed
for any of our trips, just a willingness to have fun, try new things, and meet new people.
