Summer Wilderness 2021

March 20, 2020

In light of COVID-19, Earlham has suspended all college-sponsored travel for the summer term to prioritize the health and well-being of our students, faculty and staff, and the communities we come into contact with along the way.

August Wilderness, our pre-orientation wilderness course with trips to the Uinta Mountains in Utah and Wabakimi Provincial Park in Canada, will not be offered this year.

We are continuing to monitor the situation and hope to be able to offer an alternative wilderness experience for incoming first-year and transfer students pre-orientation. This experience would occur the week before students are due to arrive on campus in a more local region. Announcements concerning pre-orientation wilderness opportunities will be posted here.

Earlham College, an independent, residential college, aspires to provide the highest-quality undergraduate education in the liberal arts and sciences, shaped by the distinctive perspectives of the Religious Society of Friends (Quakers).
