Let’s go get away!


When you’re a broke college student, you want to find the cheapest ways to have a good time. Upstate Escapes lets you do just that! And most trips are only.. get this…. FIVE DOLLARS! Including tickets and transportation. Is that insane or WHAT?

These trips are sponsored by mandatory student fees, which explain why they are such a great deal. Some of these tickets price up to 80 dollars EACH. Maybe even more. That doesn’t even include the ride there! Upstate has had trips to hockey games, Darien Lake, white water rafting, Sky High Adventure Park, and indoor rock climbing.


These trips are truly unbeatable experiences. They are a great way to get off campus for a few hours and spend time with friends, or make new ones. You can take a break from your dorm room, your books, and “escape” for a little while to enjoy life.
