Community Engagement Orientation Trip
The Community Engagement Orientation Trip (CEOT) is a 2.5 day overnight trip for students during orientation. The trip is a fun, challenging, and intensive introduction to the communities in and around Amherst.
Over the course of 2.5 days, students are immersed in local communities as they are introduced to the people and organizations of the Pioneer Valley. Students on CEOT meet fellow new students and trip leaders who share common interests and passions. They begin to develop the knowledge and tools to integrate community service, activism, or social justice work into their four years at Amherst.

1. Develop a deeper understanding of active citizenship, reciprocity and partnership in community work
2. Learn about the communities of Amherst and Holyoke
