Students interested in attending major-specific trips should consider the Mountaineer Quest model. For a full list of the majors and dates of those trips, visit https://adventurefirstyear.wvu.edu/first-year/academic-partnerships.
Registration for 2019 will open on Monday, February 4, at 9 a.m.
While there are several trip models and academic partnerships available, limited space and high demand for specific trips, such as Early Move-In trips, makes enrollment time-sensitive.
To be eligible to register, students will need to have paid the academic deposit with WVU. They will then use their WVU Login to register online for a trip. Registration will be offered on a first-come, first-served basis.
