Get to know your new home in Poultney by taking advantage of one of two pre-orientation programs developed for incoming freshmen and transfer students. First Year Impressions (FYI!) and Wilderness Challenge are both excellent ways to meet new friends and learn more about the Green Mountain Community before classes begin. The Wilderness Challenge features backpacking, rock climbing, canoeing, or sea kayaking trips led by trained student and staff leaders from the Green Mountain Adventure Program (GreenMAP). No experience is necessary for any of the trips. FYI! gives new students a fresh look at Poultney and the surrounding towns through service-learning and community experiences. FYI! introduces students to the human and physical landscape beyond the college gates and into the Poultney community.
