Experience Trips


Residence Life strives to enhance the housing experience by offering out-of-the-box opportunities to build community and establish the ResLife Experience. These unique experiences offer students both availability and convenience, and provides students the opportunity for more student-staff interaction, enhancing learning, social skills, and personal growth.

The experience trips expose students to new cultures and ventures. Our cost to the students is minimal (usually a $5 reservation fee), if anything. This provides opportunities that most of our students are not able to afford financially. By adding an educational component to some of the trips, the students get to learn and broaden ideas, thoughts, and perceptions apart from their own.

We announce all the trips at the beginning of the fall semester. A month before each trip, we send out a link via email so that everyone has the same opportunity to sign up for the trip.

A few examples of trips we have taken:

  • Night at Zoo - Atlanta
