Leadership Outdoor Orientation Program (L.O.O.P.)

As an incoming first-year or transfer student at Syracuse University this fall, you have an opportunity to begin your college experience by joining a group of your fellow classmates and peer leaders on one of our Leadership Outdoor Orientation Programs (LOOP)!

The LOOP series of pre-orientation programs are designed to bring students together through shared outdoor adventure experiences. These programs do not require any previous experience and are open to all incoming first year students.

Dates: August 18-21, 2019

The LOOP: Adirondack Adventure

The LOOP Adirondack Adventure takes you on a journey designed to give you a jump start on your college experience while actively engaging in a series of outdoor adventure activities. This program provides an opportunity to move-in early and then go off-campus on a shared adventure with fellow students. During the trip you will experience the thrills of whitewater rafting, a low and high element challenge course and zip-line, hiking to a serene waterfall, flat water kayaking and canoeing, as well as campfires, starry nights and friendship, all in the majestic setting of the Oswegatchie Educational Center, located within the Adirondack Park of New York. We return to campus on Wednesday evening to join in with the regular orientation activities - only now you have a group of friends with whom you have shared an amazing experience!
