Cougar Excursion (CE) is an interactive program specifically designed to help new students gain knowledge and create a sense of community that is pertinent to a successful first-year student at the College. Through this unique experience, natural leadership talents begin to transform into the skill sets that are pivotal to mastering the freshman year and beyond.
Perks of Participating:
- Move into your dorm before the rest of school!
- Form friendships before the semester starts.
