Trekking Patagonia: Adventures in Torres del Paine Park

1:30 - 2:30 p.m. Robertson Hall Bowl 1

In February 2016 we ran our second alumni trip in partnership with Princeton Journeys, this time to the wind-swept plains of Patagonia, Chile. During eight days on the trail the group trekked over 70 miles through Torres del Paine National Park, a scenic wonderland without parallel. Patagonia is the land of changeable weather and we had the complete experience: beautiful sunny days, condors soaring overhead, watching avalanches pour off the peaks, strong winds, rain, spectacular rainbows, crossing the Gardner Pass in the snow, and the seventeen-milelong Gray Glacier. Come explore this magnificent landscape with us and learn about our next adventure - The Tour of Mount Blanc coming in summer 2018.

Tree Tour of the Princeton campus

2:30 - 3:30 p.m. Meet at the Whig Hall Steps

The Princeton University campus has over 150 different tree species from around the world as well as trees dating back to the 1700s. Come learn about the history and diversity of trees on campus at this Reunions favorite led by Glenn "Merc" Morris ’72.

Exploring Foundations of Effective Leadership

3:30 - 4:30 p.m. Robertson Hall Bowl 1

Princeton graduates serve in countless leadership positions around the world from entrepreneurs to teachers, directors to parents. Understanding the traits and behaviors that make leaders effective is critical for any organization, and applies to students on campus and alumni in the world at large. Join us for a panel that brings together experts on leadership from academics, business, government, the non-profit sector and current Outdoor Action student leaders to explore what makes leaders effective and how to enhance your own foundations of effective leadership. 

Moderator: Rick Curtis ’79, Director, Outdoor Action Program.
