Find Your Summer Here

Hatter Treks are short adventures designed exclusively for incoming first-year students. During Hatter Treks, you immerse yourself in the Stetson campus and surrounding community, make friends that will last a lifetime and learn what it means to be a Hatter. Over the four-day trek, you will build mentoring relationships with faculty, set goals for your first year of college and learn about resources that will be essential for your success as a college student. All of our treks require no previous experience, as you will learn everything you need to know during the trip. All you need is a spirit of adventure! So come join us this summer and find yourself as part of the Stetson community. It all begins at Hatter Trek.
