Project Peak is a two-phase, one credit course, offered only in your first semester at George Mason University. The first phase consists of a six-day wilderness adventure trip held the week before your first semester begins. You and your trip mates will kayak down the beautiful Potomac River, rock climb the sheer walls of Great Falls National Park, raft the whitewater of the Youghiogheny River, camp in tents and cook on camp stoves.
The second phase is a follow-up to the trip. You and your trip mates will meet as a University 100 class once every week for the duration of the first semester. Here you will build on the foundations that were laid during your pre-semester adventure and cover topics that will continue to focus on your success in college.
No experience is necessary to participate in Project Peak, only your quest for adventure, willingness to learn, and desire to have fun. Don?t be left out! Space is limited for these adventures. Sign up today by completing the registration form and mailing or faxing it to the Freshman Center.
If you have any questions, please call the Freshman Center at 703-993-9082. We look forward to hearing from you!
