Transfer TREK will be led by a student leader who recently transferred to UVM. As a fellow transfer student, he/she can share his or her own UVM experiences, including the academic, social, residential, athletic, and extracurricular aspects of UVM. You will hike on Vermont's Long Trail or the Adirondack High Peaks and experience the wonder of the Green Mountains. Your group of 8 students and 2 leaders will celebrate both the many opportunities available at UVM and the diversity you contribute to the larger UVM community. Finally, all TREK trips are open to every incoming student; you are welcome to choose the Wilderness TREK program that best meets your needs as a new transfer student.
Transfer TREK is a great opportunity for students who are transferring to UVM to meet other students. Students who transfer to UVM have typically spent at least some time at another college or university, thus we have a specifically designed TREK option.
This program is part of the Wilderness TREK program, but is designed to help familiarize you with the unique challenges facing transfer students at UVM. Each transfer student comes to UVM with valuable educational and professional life experiences: TREK creates a wilderness-based community where those experiences can be shared with other transfer students also about to begin their UVM journey.
