About the Program

DOC First-Year Trips (or “Trips”, as we call it) is a student-run, five-day outdoor pre-orientation program designed to welcome you to Dartmouth! We try to ease your transition to college by connecting you to your class and your peers at Dartmouth, who can help you define your own experience and find your own sense of place. Trips is a unique and incredible opportunity for you to bond with other incoming students, spend a few days in the beautiful area surrounding your new home, and meet upperclass leaders who are excited to welcome you to Dartmouth.
