Arrival for Frosh Trip

Outdoor Action Check-in is Sunday, September 2 at 6:00 PM in Dillon Gym

Please gather all of your personal equipment Sunday morning, and put it either in a backpack (if you have your own) or a trashbag (if you are borrowing a backpack from OA) so that all of your things are ready Sunday evening.  You only need to bring your boots to Dillon Gym for check-in, and then will have an opportunity later in the evening to pick up the rest of your belongings from your dorm.

The Outdoor Action Leave a Trace Program

The Outdoor Action Leave a Trace Program was developed in 1999 as part of our continued goal of providing the most effective orientation program for incoming Princeton students. Each year over 50% of the incoming class participates in the Outdoor Action Frosh Trip. These trips serve as both the transition between high school and college and their first exposure to life at Princeton.
