Student Travel

Gulf Coast offers our students many different travel opportunities so you will be able to explore destinations near and far. The cost of travel varies depending on the trip, but those in Student Life work hard to make sure you get the most cost-effective experiences. Trips are open to all students who are enrolled in at least six credit hours and have a 2.0 GPA. Registration is on a first come, first served basis.


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.

We have just launched our fourth annual trip for Fall 2017 to Universal Studios Orlando for their annual Halloween Horror Nights. The trip will be in October 26th-29th and includes transportation, 3 nights at an on-site hotel, 2 day park admission, Express Passes, early park entry for $410 (lower prices for annual pass holders). And for $70 more students can add Halloween Horror Night tickets). For more information or to sign up, please contact Jessica Owens at 850.769.1551 ext. 2805.
