Our Outdoor Orientation (OO) program helps you become acquainted with our spectacular north woods region and our culture at Northland. OO also allows the newest members of our community to begin to develop a deeper sense of place.
OO experiences include everything from backcountry expeditions to urban exploration. Make sure you register for your trip as soon as possible, because they fill fast and are first-come, first-served. Have some fun looking over your options and when you’re ready, you can start the registration process.
All new students must participate in both an Outdoor Orientation experience and Welcome Week as part of the Northland College First-Year Experience graduation requirement. Transfer students arriving with less than 24 credits are required to participate in an OO experience. Transfer students arriving with 24 credits or more must participate in Welcome Week and have the option to participate in an OO experience if they wish.
