Coming into college can be a daunting thing so we’ve made it a bit easier. By providing small groups led by current students, LOOP provides the groundwork for your success here at Lyndon. Get to know some students that you normally wouldn’t; ask tons of questions of your trip leader, find out about their time at Lyndon and how to make the best of it. Many of them have been LOOPers themselves!
LOOP is an extended orientation program that offers first year students:
- Small group interaction
- Community building opportunities
- Outdoor skill building
- Positive first foot forward towards their college career
All while lugging a pack around the Green Mountains or paddling the Connecticut River. We welcome students from all walks of life who are gearing up towards any major we offer here at Lyndon. All we ask is that you bring your sense of adventure, an open mind, and ready laugh. The rest we provide!
