Adventure Orientation Programs

Terrapin Expeditions for New and Transfer Students (T.E.N.T.S.)

Adventure orientation programs are a great way to meet other incoming Terps and build relationships before the semester even begins. Trained trip leaders will teach you outdoor skills and facilitate activities and dialogue focused on your transition to college.  Each trip will focus on promoting personal growth, self-confidence, and relationship building through an adventure setting. Jump start your college experience with a T.E.N.T.S. program!

Contact: Amanda Even, Assistant Director

Summer 2018 Trips

The following adventure orientation programs will be offered for students starting at Maryland in Fall 2018.

If you are in need of financial assistance in order to participate on an adventure trip, you can apply for funding from the Adventure Program Access and Enrichment Fund. The fund was created to cover full or partial adventure trip registrations for students who need financial assistance. Our hope is to provide more Terps with the opportunity to get outside and experience the wellness benefits of physical activity and spending time in nature.
