Participate in a 5 to 6 day adventure-based trip to meet other incoming first-year students in your college and major.

These trips are FREE, earn you college credit, and are only open to incoming students in the Chambers College.
Summer 2024: Chambers College Mountaineer Quest
This camp-based, peer-led, 5-day program prepares incoming students for life at WVU and in WV. All Quest participants will engage in rock climbing, challenge course elements, whitewater rafting and will give back to the local community. Students explore and reflect on their transition to college in small group discussions in the evenings.
WHEN: July 22-26, 2024 (Quest 5A)
This session is open ONLY to incoming Business & Economics students, allowing you to meet a group of students you’ll be sharing your WVU experience with!
This program is FREE FOR YOU! All Adventure WV trips charge a $95 registration fee, however the Chambers College will provide a $95 credit to participating students* for the cost of this trip! We strongly believe in giving students a great first experience at WVU and setting you up for success in your WVU career!
WHAT ABOUT NSO?
This trip is separate from on-campus New Student Orientation (NSO) and does not fulfill your NSO requirement. This trip is separate from your First-Year Seminar that you are required to take as part of your Fall Semester.
HOW DO I GET A SPOT ON ONE OF THESE PROGRAMS?
There are only 25 spots available for this trip! Admitted students who have paid the academic deposit may register on a first-come, first-served basis beginning February 5th, 2024 at https://adventurewv.wvu.edu/first-year-trips/registration. Please sign up for the waitlist even if the trip is full. Spots may become available throughout the semester.
