Interests
Our outdoor expeditions heavily emphasize leadership development, civic engagement, and entrepreneurial skills. Our primary objective with this questionnaire is to identify students who are motivated, disciplined, have common sense, and are physically able to do the outdoor adventure activities.
If given a choice, what job would you prefer to focus on?
Do you like to read?
Physical Fitness
A lot of what we will be doing on the expeditions revolves around hikes and outdoor activities. We do A LOT of walking, sometimes over very challenging terrain; we hike above 10,000 feet in the Rockies, through the desert in Utah, and raft in really cold water in Colorado. As such, we need to get an understanding of your general physical condition.
What is the longest distance you have ever walked or hiked? *
Have you ever played a school or team sport? *
If I told you that, today, you need to go out and walk 20 miles, can you do it? *
Do you have any physical limitations that might prevent you from doing a strenuous outdoor activity? NOTE: Answering yes to this is not an automatic disqualifier. *
If you answered yes to the previous question, please explain.
Tell me what the 40% rule is? Do you believe it? *
Experiences
Not all smart people have good grades. That's why I don't want to know what your GPA is, and would rather submit to torture than talk to you about standardized test results. Instead, I want students who are smart, have common sense, and are motivated to become leaders.
What was the largest group of people you have ever spoken to? *
If you had to choose, what activity would you like to do the most? *
