Outdoor Odyssey Orientation Program

A group of hikers

Outdoor Odyssey is a pre-freshman orientation program hosted by Cornell Outdoor Education offering 4, 6 and 8 day trips. We offer a variety of trips: backpacking, canoeing, rock climbing, community service, and even trips for transfer students. All of our trips end right on move-in day, the same day that the rest of Cornell arrives on campus. Outdoor Odyssey was founded in 1972 and is a completely student run organization. All of our guides are current Cornell students who are excited to share their love of Cornell, the outdoors, and Odyssey with you!

Outdoor Odyssey offers Financial Aid! Anyone who is need of financial aid WILL BE GRANTED financial assistance. Please see registration for more information.
