Orientation Trips

Exclusive trips for new incoming freshman and transfer Sac State students!

This winter Peak Adventures will be offering two adventure trips for incoming transfer students to help ease the transition to Sac State and begin to create a sense of community while enjoying the outdoors. These Transfer Orientation Trips are open and encouraged to new spring 2019 transfer students. No prior experience in the outdoors is needed to participate in this program. Participants will partake in activities where they will be required to walk/ exercise 1-3 hours. Please email peakinfo@csus.edu if you have any questions or need any special accommodations.

*Note: These trips are a complement to transfer orientation in January.  It will not replace the in-person orientation requirement.
