Frequently Asked Questions

If you have a question that isn't answered here, please contact us att hattertrek@stetson.edu.

When will information about the 2019 Hatter Treks be available?

Information about the 2019 Hatter Treks is available now! Visit the Hatter Trek main page or the individual Trek pages.

Applications for the 2019 Hatter Treks are now available and are due May 1, 2019. Space is limited, so the sooner you register, the more likely you are to secure a spot!

Do I have to register?

Yes! Registering secures your spot, lets us know any special needs you might have and gives us a way to keep in touch with you to send updates and important information and order your awesome Hatter Trek t-shirt. Remember, spaces are limited, so hurry!

Registration for Hatter Trek 2019 is closed.  

Can I drive myself?

Yes! You can drive to DeLand and park for free during your Hatter Trek experience. But you have to travel with us to any Hatter Trek activities that are off-campus.

What if I'm flying to my Hatter Trek experience?

For all four experiences, check-in at Stetson University's DeLand campus will be from 12:00 p.m. - 1:30 p.m. and the welcome activity will start at 2:00 p.m. If you're flying in, your flight should be scheduled to arrive at Orlando International Airport (MCO) no later than 11:30 a.m. so that you can catch our free shuttle to campus. The shuttle is scheduled to leave the airport at 12:00 p.m.

The trek will end around 2:30 p.m. on Friday (the last day of each trip). If you plan to fly home, our shuttle will leave for Orlando International Airport (MCO) at 3:00 p.m. You should schedule your flight to depart at 6:00 p.m. or later.

Please keep in mind that we'll only offer one shuttle service to and from the Orlando International Airport (MCO) at the times described above. The cost for all other transportation is up to you.

What if I can no longer attend Hatter Trek?

By registering for the trip we have secured your space and paid for your accommodations. We understand that extenuating circumstances may occur, so we'll issue a full refund if we are able to fill your space before May 1. If we're unable to fill your space, or if it's after May 1, no refunds will be issued.

Will I need to bring any money?

Yes. While most meals are provided for each of the trips, you'll need money for some meals, snacks and souvenirs should you choose to purchase some. If you're arriving the night before, or staying after, you're responsible for meals, accomodations and transportation.

I have special dietary needs. Will this affect my trip?

Please let us know your needs when you register. Vegan, gluten-free, kosher, vegetarian and other special needs can easily be accommodated, but please let us know so we can plan accordingly. Please contact Kristin Graham, Assistant Director of First Year and Transition Programs, at kgraham@stetson.edu if you have any questions.

I missed the application deadline. Can I still apply?

The trips will fill up quickly, but contact Kristin Graham, Assistant Director of First Year and Transition Programs, at kgraham@stetson.edu to see if there are any openings or to be put on the wait list.
