STUDENT TRAVEL SERVICES
STS Travel was founded in 1984 by two Cornell University graduates who shared one common goal: to specialize in the marketing and operation of travel services designed specifically for students. Since our foundation in 1984, STS has handled the travel plans of over a half of million student travelers. This tremendous volume gives STS a great deal of negotiating power, enabling us to assemble quality vacation packages within the budget confines of the student traveler. Today, we have evolved into one of America's premier collegiate tour operators, having student organizations, travel agents, and campus representatives representing STS on over 1000 campuses throughout the United States.
