There's 10 Weeks of Sophomore Summer…
...and Trips comes along just to end it! Coming out of my classes and finals period in my junior summer, I was so excited to be able to be a part of the First-Year Trips program. For those of you not familiar with this beloved Dartmouth tradition, the Trips program is an orientation program where each first-year student is matched with a group of their peers and two upperclass Trip Leaders and the entire group – also known as a trip – goes into the out of doors for various outdoors activities. I know that coming to Dartmouth, when I was selecting my trip, I was not very familiar with going into the outdoors or camping. Luckily, there is a wide variety of different options available for students, everything from strenuous hiking to flatwater kayaking (which was my trip)! This year, there was an even broader selection of trips for the 25s, everything ranging from community service in the Upper Valley to museum exploration.
