The University of Rochester First-Year Orientation Outing Treks program, informally known as UR FOOT, has been a very popular orientation program since its establishment in 2005.  What started as a small-scale program initially run as a side project of the outdoor group has grown into its current state as a student association-recognized club, large enough to accommodate 130 class of 2022 first-years! We aim to give first-years the opportunity to experience a 3-day, overnight, outdoor trek – annually scheduled to take place the weekend leading up to the University’s planned orientation program.  This year’s Trekees will arrive at U of R August 18th. Treks will leave August 19th and will return August 21st (Just in time for orientation to begin!).
