FIRST Adventure is an inaugural summer program sponsored by the Offices of First Year Program and Outdoor Adventure, dedicated to helping a small group of students get to know each other, the campus, and themselves prior to their college arrival.
  • Students will have the opportunity to spend the night on campus, meet campus faculty and staff while also strengthening their leadership skills by completing the Gallup's Strengths Finder.  They will then travel to Halsey, NE where they will spend time getting to know fellow students by team building through ropes courses, kayaking, camping and other fun adventures! 
  • One session capped at 25 students each, is offered July 20-23.
  • Cost of this entire experience (including meals, travel, lodging, materials etc.) as well as other FIRST Adventure events through out the first year is $180 (prior to June 30) or $200 (after June 30).
