University of Vermont



TREK is an intense and unique team-building and enrichment program for first-year students led by experienced peers.  Sponsored by the Department of Student Life Outdoor and Leadership & Civic Engagement Programs, TREK has offered new students diverse, experiential learning opportunities that promote community building, self-discovery, and connection with future classmates for over 30 years.  

Each trip is led by two experienced student leaders who lead between 8-10 new students on a week of service projects or out in the back country of Vermont and upstate New York.  This August, we will welcome more than 250 TREKKIES from the Class of 2018!  We hope you will be one of them.
