The new year brings about new opportunities and challenges. At Mass Maritime, the Cadets are reporting aboard the TS Kennedy today for the start of Sea Term2012. The Ship departs Jan 8th enroute to the Caribbean with port calls in Golfito, Costa Rica; Guayaquil, Ecuador; Panama City, Republic of Panama; Charlotte Amalie, St. Thomas, USVI. In addition to getting an education for your future- college is about broadening your horizons beyond what you already know. I can't think of too many better opportunities to experience a new and different life than the chance to participate in multiple sea terms that is presented to you at the State Maritime colleges and USMMA. Here's the ship they will be calling home for a couple of months: http://www.maritime.edu/index.cfm?pg=405 http://www.maritime.edu/index.cfm?pg=404 It should be an interesting winter for the Cadets at MMA- here's wishing you all"fair winds and following seas"!
