Freshman Flotilla

Freshman Flotilla is a time-honored tradition for the Honors College and our incoming freshmen! Join your Honors classmates on the Congaree River for a morning or afternoon of fun and relaxation.

Kayaks and transportation are provided by the Honors College and the available spots are limited. To reserve your spot, complete and submit our online form and provide proof of medical insurance.

We spend a lot of time in the sun and water so please dress appropriately, bring a water bottle, sunscreen, hat and any other items you need for fun in the sun.

*Participating in Flotilla is not mandatory but we encourage you to take advantage of this opportunity to meet your fellow students and get to know the city a little better. 

Who can participate?

This trip is reserved for Honors College freshmen.

How much does Flotilla cost?

Flotilla is sponsored by the Honors College at no cost to you!

What should I wear?

We recommend that you wear things you do not mind getting wet or muddy. You may want to leave your favorite sneakers or sunglasses at home. 

Can I drive myself?

No, all participants will meet at a central location and must ride the bus to the river put-in. 

What should I bring?

You will need to have your signed waiver and any other items that you will need in the sun and water (sunscreen, water bottle, hat, towel, bug spray, etc.)

How do I join?

Challenge the conventional. Create the exceptional. No Limits.
