The Impact of Quest

"Quest allowed me to meet so many people before coming to Trinity that I would not have met otherwise, and is one of the few places where I can wear my Crocs!" -Torrey Hill '19

Overview

Incoming first years in the class of 2021 have the opportunity to start their Trinity  College journey with a wilderness adventure on Quest, Trinity’s extended pre-orientation on the Appalachian Trail (the “AT”).

For 12 summers, Trinity College has been proud to offer the Quest Leadership & Pre-Orientation Program. Few colleges or universities offer an extended wilderness adventure comparable to Quest. The program’s philosophy encourages participants to take on new challenges and responsibilities, meet other Trinity students, and transition into college.

Students will be transported from Trinity College to the Appalachian Trail in Western New York, Connecticut, and Massachusetts and divided into groups of six to ten participants.

Previous outdoor experience is not required: two-three student instructors will teach all the basic wilderness skills necessary on the trip.

Trinity College faculty, staff, and students will serve as program staff, responsible for facilitating climbs, rappels, transportation, and overall program logistics.  

The different trip options allow students to participate  in fall athletic practices, the P.R.I.D.E program, Venture, and the Bantam Beginnings Pre-Orientation program.
