Join us in the Mountains

31 Aug

Join fellow Honors students for the Stephens’ Hike along 5 miles of the Appalachian Trail on the crest of South Mountain in western Maryland. This won’t be a strenuous hike, more like a walk in the woods with a little scrambling in places to add some variety. Seats are limited and open to all Honors students. Transportation there and back, and lunch are included.

This is a well-loved tradition in the UHP, and seats fill up quickly — so hurry and reserve yours now! You can check out pics from other hikes at our Facebook page.

  • Costs $5 (Cash)
  • Saturday, September 10th, 9am-6pm (leaving from the University Honors Program Office)
  • DEADLINE to sign up: Wednesday, September 7th

Stop by the office to leave $5 to reserve your spot.

Then, RSVP on Facebook! Yay! Social media!


George Stephens served for years as the deputy director of the University Honors Program. His commitment to the honors program was genuine, and he cared deeply about his students. George was an accomplished, field-based geologist with a wide range of scientific interests. He led the annual Honors hike every year, and the hike is now named in his honor.
