A Note About Choosing your FYJ
College is full of new experiences, and FYJ is a great place to begin your adventure! When considering trip options, we encourage you to try something new that may ask you to step out of your comfort zone. Our FYJs do not require previous experience, and while some offer greater physical challenges than others, our leaders, faculty, and guides are here to help support you through those challenges.
There are three categories of First Year Journeys: Outdoor Experience, Academic Immersion, and Community Engagement. All Trips are led by University of Redlands students, alumni, or faculty and staff. These folks are enthusiastic, experienced, and dedicated to your success on your FYJ and as a student at the U of R! Each trip has two leaders, at least one leader whom is certified as a Wilderness First Responder.
