  • Full-service transportation, door to door from Florida Southern to your final destination and back again.
  • All lodging, including on-campus housing prior to trip and throughout your travels
  • Most meals, with a few exceptions. Faculty trip directors share detailed itineraries so you’ll know which meals might not be covered.
  • If your trip allows free time for outside excursions, these are at your own expense.

* Deposit Deadline - Please note that trip space is limited and trips may fill before the deadline date.

** Although some trips are free for Junior Journey eligible students, there is a $100 refundable deposit which will be returned after you complete the trip. All other trips will have a deposit of $500 or more which is a part of the total trip cost.
