Quick plug for Cornell Outdoor Odyssey! Odyssey is a pre-orientation program run by Cornell Outdoor Education that takes incoming freshmen and transfers on trips the week before move-in. We do things like backpacking, canoeing, climbing, and trail service in the Finger Lakes, Catskills, and Adirondacks, and we provide a great way to make a super close-knit group of friends before you get to campus. Many students even go on to become guides and lead trips the following years!
Most importantly, no experience is required, and full and partial financial aid is available!
