Tech Outdoor Orientation is a program for new WVU Tech students to assist them in making a successful transition to college life and academics. This six-day program allows students to learn about the university, make friends and increase self-confidence as they tackle the amazing outdoor adventures West Virginia has to offer.

TECH OUTDOOR ORIENTATION

Choose from Gorge or Highlands

Highlands is a bit more demanding physically due to the rugged terrain of the program sites and the three-day backpacking trip. Both trips are great for beginner adventurers, but the Gorge is a better choice if you are brand new to camping and outdoor activities.
