Now in its 26th year, the Tufts Wilderness Orientation program offers you an unforgettable experience as an incoming student. If you join us, we will lead you and a small group of other freshfolk on a five day backcountry expedition. Our purpose is to provide an exhilarating and unique outdoor adventure for new students.
You can take advantage of this informal group atmosphere to make great friends, learn about Tufts, find answers to questions about the upcoming four years, and generally have a good time in the outdoors. It’s a great way to start school and a perfect time to share thoughts, worries, and expectations about college with other incoming students.
TWO was started by students and continues to be a student-run program today. Our staff goes through a 5 day training session in August, and are held to a high standard of technical and interpersonal skills. They are known throughout campus for their enthusiasm and love for what they do!
