Journey on Quiet Waters


Finding Your Place in the World

In partnership with Ramble Outdoors, we are offering a once in a life-time canoe trip for Loyola students seeking to:

  • Discern their strengths
  • Ask big questions
  • Build community
  • Explore their calling
  • Share their story

A Journey on Quiet Waters is designed to provide students with an opportunity to learn about themselves and others through adventure. While taking an 11-day trip to the Boundary Waters Canoe Area students will be asked to reflect on their time at Loyola, learn about themselves, and to consider their commitment to their academic major or potential future careers. This wilderness expedition is not for students who have it all figured out, but those that do not feel fully invested in their vocational futures or those who are truly undecided. Additionally, no prior paddling or camping experience is necessary. However, a willingness to spend time mentally and physically preparing for the course is essential to success.

Dates: 5/11/2015 through 5/21/2015 (information for the 2015 trip will be posted soon)

Cost: $450 (financial assistance available)

Where: Boundary Waters Canoe Area, MN

Application Deadline: April 1, 2015
