August Wilderness 2019
Earlham's long-standing pre-orientation program is the ideal way to start the Earlham College experience. Incoming First Year students have the opportunity to go road-tripping "out west" to go backpacking for 11 days in the Uinta Mountains of Utah. Forming lifelong friendships, gaining leadership training, and receiving an introduction to Earlham's integrated curriculum opportunities (3 academic credits awarded) are just some of the benefits of this unique experience. For many students August Wilderness starts of a rewarding relationship with Outdoor Education program.
