The long-term effects of a first-year student wilderness orientation program
Positive changes were found 17 years after participants' experiences in a wilderness orientation program. Three themes representing the changes emerged from the data: (a) challenging assumptions of self and others, (b) strong effects of peer relationships, and (c) long-term positive effects of the orientation program during students' undergraduate education, as well as after graduation.
