Developed by the Office of Experiential Education, Ascent is Gettysburg College's oldest and most popular pre-orientation program. These trips combine wilderness education with the “This I Believe” essay series to create opportunities for first year students to connect as they begin their Gettysburg College experience.
On these programs you may trek through forests or test your limits scaling cliffs, but either way you will walk away from your five day experience with so much more. You will create meaningful friendships, feel the accomplishment of overcoming new challenges, and gain an understanding from your peer facilitators of what lies ahead at Gettysburg College. Regardless of your experience level we design our programs with you in mind, so follow in the footsteps of so many Gettysburg leaders before you and sign up for Ascent today!
