Semester-A-Trail

Earn College Credit while enjoying the Great Outdoors!

The Semester-A-Trail Program is a unique opportunity for students seeking a learning experience that goes well beyond the classroom. Students in the program earn at least twelve hours of college credit in a single college semester while thru-hiking the Appalachian Trail, or an adventure of similar depth and scope. The experience offers students a synthesis of academic learning and outdoor adventure in an intensive, goal-oriented journey that will challenge them both physically and intellectually, immersing students in real-world competencies.
