Members of the Class of 2001 will begin arriving on campus on Sept. 3 for their Dartmouth Outing Club trips, described by Gus Moore '99 as a night in Hanover, "two nights with cous-cous and burritos and a final night with the lodge crew." Moore, who helped plan the trips for this year, said trip leaders and crews are getting excited for trips. Liz Gerber '98 is the trips director this year. Moore said the trips director starts planning for freshmen trips Fall term by "getting the ball rolling" on working with the administration -- organizing facilities and discussing the previous year's trips with deans. He said the trips director also coordinates with Vermont Transit in the fall -- a year early -- since they require five of its buses for two full weeks to transport trippees. Moore the director begins organizing the computer system that keeps track of all trips information in the Winter term. In the spring, all freshmen, wait-listed students and transfer students receive DC trips mailings, Moore said.
