Garrison participates in hiking as a part of the University of Vermont TREK program

BURLINGTON, VT — On Saturday, Aug. 17,  Van Garrison, of Lewisville, and more than 270 first-year University of Vermont students, led by 76 upper class leaders, began their UVM experience as part of TREK, a unique, seven-day first year enrichment program sponsored by the University’s Department of Student Life.

Van Garrison participated in hiking. A part of the Wilderness TREK program which provides students the opportunity to build lasting friendships, initiate self-discovery, and explore the people and landscapes that are Vermont, Hiking TREK provides incoming students an opportunity to visit and explore some of the highest, most remote and oldest footpaths in the country — all along the long trail and in the Adirondacks. Hiking on average eight miles per day, traversed through hardwood, trickling streams and learned of the North Country’s rich, natural history along the way.
