Outdoor Action

Leadership Starts Here

Outdoor Action is now an integrated part of Orientation for the Class of 2020

Starting in 2016 the OA Frosh Trip will be an integrated part of the orientation process for incoming students. Next fall students will arrive on September 3 for two days of orientation in the residential colleges followed by either a 5-day Outdoor Action or Community Action trip or a program for fall student-athletes.
This is a momumental step forward for OA. It recognizes and applauds the impact that OA has had for incoming students for over forty years and transforms the program from 'optional pre-orientation' to an integrated and integral part of the orientation process. I want to say thank you to the thousands of OA Alumni Leaders who dedicated themselves to helping incoming students get the very best start at Princeton. You created the model that the University has chosen to implement.
Going forward the OA Frosh Trip will be offered at no charge to all participants. Also, the OA Leader Training Program will now be free to all participants.

Laura Redman ’03: “Going on a three-day, 40km hike on the Routeburn Track in New Zealand’s Southern Alps this December. Hoping to spot a hobbit.”

We are really excited to open the new Outdoor Action Web site. As the portal for all things OA, the new site gives us the opportunity to reach out to alumni and friends as well as current students to tell 'the OA Story.' We hope that you'll help us write that story with your recollections and tales from OA trips gone by.
