Outdoor Adventures Pre-Orientation Adventure

Have an Adventure. Make New Friends. Get Connected. Learn about Life at USD. Challenge Yourself.

Pre-O Adventure is an optional program that helps ease the transition to USD by giving small groups of incoming students a chance to connect with amazing student leaders, meet new friends and have a better understanding of what to expect with college life at USD.

This year marks the 29th year that Outdoor Adventures(OA) has offered Pre-O Adventure trips. We are offering a campus-based program this year that will introduce students to some of our favorite outdoor spaces close to campus (think beach, bay and canyon) and hopefully incorporate a variety of outdoor activities. Pre-O Adventure is a great way to find your home "OA" from home!

In compliance with state, county and USD guidelines, our program will be housed on campus this year.  Students do not need to have any previous experience for anything offered, however, a willingness to spend all day enjoying the outdoors highly recommended. Financial assistance is available to students receiving need-based financial aid.  

We are excited to welcome you to USD and encourage you to learn more about the experience planned for Pre-Orientation Adventure 2020!

If you are unsure if Pre-Orientation Adventure is right for you, ask yourself... Do you want to meet new friends before orientation begins? Would you like to start school feeling more confident and prepared? Do you like eating great food while hanging out outdoors? Do you want to learn how to make the most of your time in San Diego? We invite you to start your USD career off right by participating in Pre-Orientation Adventure!
