Outdoor First Year Orientation Trip

August 19 - August 22

The Mars Hill University first year orientation trip will take place the week before move-in and is catered specifically to incoming MHU students. The program is designed to provide students with the opportunity to build friendships with other first-year students, to learn about the incredible outdoor recreation opportunities available in WNC, and to reflect on their transition to college with other students in a fun and relaxed environment. No experience is required to register for the trip, and we encourage all experience levels to come along for the adventure!
