Quest offers several trip dates and options to accommodate students who wish to participate in more than one pre-orientation and for athletes to participate in the start of fall sports.

As of 7/1/20  Quest is being moved to a virtual experience. We strongly believe in the positive impact that Quest has to the new student experience and because of that, we are committed to offering this opportunity to all of you. After careful consideration, it has been determined that in order to ensure the health and safety of our community and maintain the goals and values of Quest, running a virtual experience is the best option for the leaders and participants. This decision has been made as an independent announcement and does not reflect the plans of Trinity College or on the fall semester. Quest requires a lot of logistical planning and preparation and at this time it is necessary for our refocused work to be dedicated to redesigning our programs to go virtually.

 

During May, the Quest student leaders participated in a week long virtual training experience and based on the success of this program the Quest leaders know they can provide a positive and interactive experience that meets the goals of our program.

 

We are confident that the primary goals of Quest will remain.

Goals of Quest include:

To provide a unique experiential opportunity for leaders and participants to:

  • establish friendships, bonds, and support networks
  • challenge their pre-conceived physical, mental, and emotional limits
  • develop confidence, responsibility, integrity, and self-reliance
  • build skills in teamwork, listening, communication, conflict resolution, cooperation, and leadership

 

At this time all previously scheduled trips are moving to the 4-day virtual Quest experience being offered from Aug. 24th – Aug. 27th. Those who register for the Quest virtual experience will have first choice in an outdoor orientation program that we will look to schedule during the spring semester.

 

As the student leaders and I continue to plan the virtual Quest experience we will communicate changes to dates and send everyone an itinerary as soon as we can. We will do everything we can to ensure your virtual Quest is a memorable and engaging experience and of the high quality that Quest is known for.

Registration can be found here and more information can be viewed on Quest’s social media.

Please reach out to Quest Trainer lia.urbanspillane@trincoll.edu with any questions. We look forward to welcoming you to the Trinity community this fall.

 

All my best,

Kevin Johnson
