Freshmen Outdoor Trips

Due to Covid-19, we've changed up our multi-day outings to focus on the amazing outdoor activities that can be done in one day, in Duluth, and near campus. All outings will start right on campus, with some that include biking or hiking to sites. Pick an activity each day from our menu of outings. If you are an on-campus resident, check with Housing and Residence Life for your date to check-in (this will determine which days you'll be available to participate).


The Freshman Outdoor Trips and the Transfer Student Outdoor Trip (Note: We no longer offer the Transfer Student Outdoor Trip, but transfer students are welcome to join any of the Freshman Outdoor Trips) are a great way to transition to UMD through meeting friends and having fun! Each trip is well planned, has great leaders, and gets you out to explore wild places. Safety and fun are top priorities. These trips are led by experienced Outdoor Program student leaders from throughout the UMD campus. NO EXPERIENCE NECESSARY! ALL ACTIVITY EQUIPMENT IS PROVIDED!
