Adirondack Adventure (AA), Hamilton's eight-day outdoor program for incoming students, and its sister program Urban Service Experience (USE), will welcome members of the class of 2014 on Aug. 13 for pre-orientation.

AA, which celebrated its 25th year in 2009, is a pre-orientation program featuring 26 trips that focus on hiking, canoeing, rock climbing or kayaking at beginning, intermediate or advanced ability levels. All trips are conducted in various locations in the Adirondacks.

USE is a few years old and offers a parallel option to Adirondack Adventure for those students who are not interested in outdoor trips, but would like to participate in a pre-orientation group. This year groups will volunteer at six non-profit agencies in the nearby city of Utica and “camp” indoors at a downtown Utica site.
