Trips 2020

More specific information about Trips 2020 will be posted in June. Hang tight, stay safe, healthy, and happy, and email us with any questions!

General Information

Trips provides incredible opportunities to get to know a) your peers, b) tons of student volunteers psyched to welcome you to College, and c) the beautiful surrounding area! On the day you arrive in Hanover, you'll prepare to set out on your trip and meet your Trips section (Trips occurs in many staggered sections to accommodate all first years) of roughly 100 other first-year students, just as excited (and probably nervous) as you are. Bright and early the next day, you'll head out for the next 2 days with your small trip group of 5-10 first years, led by your two wonderful trip leaders, to participate in one of the many types of trips we offer. On day 4, you'll arrive at Dartmouth's Moosilauke Ravine Lodge at the base of Mt. Moosilauke in Warren, NH for an evening with first years from your Trips section, who will all be excited to meet you and share their unique adventures from the previous days. After a night at the Lodge, you'll be brought back to Hanover. More details will be sent out in registration materials to come!

Special Notes

For the entire length of your trip, we provide all meals and housing. Though we always have vegetarian food, please let us know on your registration form about any special dietary needs or allergies. We work  with the College's Student Accessibility Services Office and are committed to making the Trips program as accommodating as possible. Please feel free to contact us if you have any questions or have any specific accessibility needs. Once you are assigned a specific trip, we will provide you with more detailed information about what to bring and where you are going day by day.
