Academic Partnerships

Adventure WV First-Year Trips is proud to partner with colleges and departments across WVU to provide collaborative First-Year Trip opportunities for students! First-Year Trip partnerships allow students to participate in our long-standing pre-college trips with other students from only that department or college. Several partnerships offer multiple trip model options, meaning that students can choose the trip model and dates that appeal most to them (students may only participate in one trip). 

Participating in a partnership-specific trip means that students receive the benefits of our general First-Year Trips, with the added bonuses of:

  • Forming community with students in your college/department; the faces you’ll most likely see often in your first semester classes!
  • Potentially meeting and getting to know some faculty or staff within your college/department
  • Many partners integrate their partnership First-Year Trip with their fall semester First-Year Seminar course, allowing you to be in class with the students who were on your trip, and integrating the experiences from your summer trip with the experiences in your on-campus class.

See below for a complete list of partnership availabilities. If your college or department trip offerings don’t fit your schedule or needs, we encourage you to explore other First-Year Trips with Adventure WV!
