Western Outdoor Orientation Trips
WOOT will be offering a hybrid program for all incoming students!! Please Visit Basecamp WOOT in the menu above for more detail!!
Message to our incoming students:
We recognize that although we are unable to engage in our usual week-long Wilderness WOOT Experiences sea kayaking, backpacking, and trekking all over the Pacific Northwest, the importance of developing a strong community is more present than ever and we want to provide the opportunity to creating meaningful connections with other incoming students! Our mission stands stronger than ever as “WOOT aims to support, enhance, and ease the transition into Western for first-year students through outdoor adventure” with some online activity sprinkled in:).
Regardless of whether you are coming in as a transfer student, participated in Running Start, or are entering college for your first time, there’s an opportunity for you to participate in WOOT! We believe that through providing mentorship, engaging with your peers in fun, meaningful conversations and activities, and challenging yourself to step out of your comfort zone, Basecamp WOOT will help you transition to Western knowing that your Trip Leaders and peers are here for you each step of the way.
