FORT MYERS, FL - Florida Gulf Coast University Alumni Association announces the launch of "Eagle Escapes," a travel program for alumni, friends, and the entire FGCU family, reinforcing the Alumni Associationís commitment to building enduring relationships between alumni and the University community through enriching programs.
