PEAK Experiences

Do you want to make new friends before classes start? Do you enjoy the outdoors or connecting with people with similar interests? If you answered YES to either of these questions, then our PEAK Experiences are for you! These are small group experiences led by trained student leaders. And they'll be the foundation of your new community of friends, classmates, and campus life.

Choose from hiking through the San Juan mountain range, engaging in cultural activities, rafting down the San Juan River, or getting a head start on your nursing education.

When: August 18-23, 2024
