What is intramural travel?  It is travel that offers students the opportunity to see new places and meet new people outside of the academic setting.  These trips include athletic activities such as a canoe trip on the Econfina river, a boat ride to Shell Island, and visiting the Marianna Caverns. 

Additionally, we provide opportunities to attend various sporting events and theme parks such as Universal, even Disney!

If you have suggestions for an intramural trip, please email Donna Peterson or call 850-769-1551 ext. 3868. You can also drop by the SGA office located in Student Union East cafeteria.

International Travel

Have you always wanted to travel overseas? Every summer we offer international trips to places like Italy, France, Switzerland and Ireland.  

Our previous destination for Summer 2019 was Italy!  

"The trip to Italy has made me more confident and comfortable with myself...This adventure has given me a new perspective and I now know what is truly important to me. I am so grateful for this remarkable and ever so memorable experience."

- Brittani Peacock
