Planning for FC Bound
To secure a spot at this event, it is mandatory for students to register on this website. Please note that registration for this event will be closed two weeks in advance. Don’t miss out on this opportunity and register now!
There is a $60 registration fee for each admitted student attending FC Bound. This fee covers food, event activities, and a t-shirt. Also, if you decide to join us for Busch Gardens on Saturday, tickets will be offered at a discounted rate of $80 which will be added to your registration fee.
You are not registered until we receive your payment and you receive email confirmation.
FC Bound events begin Thursday evening and end Friday night. There will be an option during registration to extend your trip to include Saturday at an amusement park with our student body–tickets will be discounted through a group rate. If you choose the amusement park option, you should plan to arrive Thursday afternoon and depart Sunday during the day. If you will only be staying for the events on campus, you should plan to arrive Thursday afternoon and depart Saturday morning/afternoon.
Do not make travel arrangements until you receive an email confirmation that you have been registered and we have received the registration fee.
