Appalachian Trail, TN
FOOT is a unique wilderness experience that takes place the week before classes start. Trained upperclassmen lead incoming students on a weeklong backpacking trip along the Appalachian Trail. The route meanders between the borders of Tennessee and North Carolina. The trips are suited for all levels of experience—from the novice to the Eagle Scout.
In groups of 8 to 10 freshmen with two trip leaders, you will hike, camp, cook outdoors, play games, swim in waterfalls, and spend a day giving back to the mountains by learning how to build and maintain hiking trails.
This week of outdoor adventure with a group of new classmates will be an incredible introduction to the Wright State community; it will get you started on the Wright FOOT.
