Mountaineer Quest

Summer 2017

Mountaineer Quest 2016


WHAT: This camp-based, peer-led, 5-day program that prepares incoming students for life at WVU and in WV. Hosted at Camp Muffly in WV, students will participate in day trips around WVU, adventuring with their group. Day trips may include sightseeing, rock climbing, inflatable kayaking or whitewater rafting, hiking, service with a local organization, and activities around the camp. Students explore and reflect on their transition to college in small group discussions in the evenings.

WHEN: This session runs from June 26-30, 2017 and is ONLY for incoming Business & Economics students, allowing you to meet a group of students you’ll be sharing your WVU experience with!

ADDITIONAL BENEFITS: All participants in this session will also enroll in the same section of BCOR 199 (The fall introduction to business requirement). The trip itself does not carry academic credit. However, because of the summer component, some of the fall BCOR 199 components will be waived, thus giving the students a lighter fall course load.

HOW MUCH: This program is FREE FOR YOU! This program charges a $95 registration fee, however the College of B&E will provide a $95 credit to participating students* for the cost of this program! B&E strongly believes in giving students a great first experience at WVU and setting you up for success in your WVU career! (*Students who enroll in the program but drop or don’t participate will not receive the credit and will be charged the $95 fee).

WHAT ABOUT NSO? This program is separate from on-campus New Student Orientation (NSO). Students can make it a one-time trip to Morgantown by attending New Student Orientation on Friday, June 23rd, enjoying a weekend exploring Morgantown and the surrounding area, and then starting with Quest on Monday, June 26th. This trip gives students the opportunity to meet additional students, develop lasting friendships, and enter into their first days at WVU with a deeper comfort and understanding of the WVU community.

HOW DO I GET A SPOT ON THIS PROGRAM? There are only 50 spots available! Admitted and students who have paid the academic deposit may register on a first-come, first-served basis beginning February 6th at http://adventureorientation.wvu.edu/registration.
