UPDATE FROM THE APPALACHIAN TRAIL

In two weeks, Shenandoah University welcomes more than 1,000 hiking enthusiasts from across the country attending the 40th Appalachian Trail Conservancy (ATC) Biennial Conference. Many conference participants will set up tents on the soccer field behind the parking garage and call campus home for a week.

It’s an honor for Shenandoah to host the ATC, so to get into the spirit of the conference, more than 60 employees signed up to collectively “Walk the AT.”

Since June 1, the group has logged an amazing 2,451.89 miles! In AT terms, this means they walked the entire length of the trail – 2,189 miles – in less than four weeks and are now headed back to where they began. In Appalachian Trail lingo, hiking from Georgia to Maine and back to Georgia is known a “yo-yo hike” and is exceptionally rare for a hiker to complete in a year.

The Shenandoah group is showing its progress on a large map in the Brandt Student Center rotunda. To learn more about the Appalachian Trail Conservancy conference, visit atc2015.org and su.edu/events.

1) Meet with advisor
2) Add courses to plan for approval either by selecting from My Progress or searching the Course Catalog.
3) Request advisor review under the Advising tab under Plan Your Degree and Schedule and email advisor.

Once advisor has approved…

4) Choose sections for each course by clicking on the grey bar that reads “View other sections” – sections will appear in yellow on the weekly grid.
5) Click the Register Now button in the top right corner of the screen. If the registration was successful, the courses will then appear in green.

If students weren’t able to get into all of their classes and must choose other options, start again at step 2.
