First-Year Trips

Founded in 1935, the Dartmouth Outing Club (DOC) First-Year Trips program has warmly welcomed over 90 percent of first-year students in recent years. "Trips" is an entirely student-run, pre-orientation program that offers a five-day outdoor experience accessible to all skill levels and backgrounds with the goal of providing first-year students a support system from the moment they arrive in Hanover. More than 350 upperclass students from all areas of campus work tirelessly to welcome students to life at Dartmouth while celebrating the diversity of Dartmouth experiences.
