Tiger Trek trips typically depart the Colorado College campus the afternoon of the last Wednesday of the block and return on the block break Saturday or Sunday. Participants must attend mandatory orientation and de-briefing sessions, research the organizations we will tour and individuals that the group will meet, and practice good networking skills (which will be covered in the orientation session). There is no cost to participating students for these trips, but a deposit of $50 ($45 refunded after the trip) is required to secure a slot.
