ALUMNI IN ACTION:  Meet Seth Garfield

Doug Karlson, communications@sea.edu

SEA Semester

As a third-generation resident of Cuttyhunk and an aquaculture pioneer, Seth Garfield, W-23, has made a career on the water and he credits SEA Semester for much of his success.

An active member of the SEA community, Seth’s involvement began in 1975, when he enrolled in SEA Semester as a senior in high school.  He was the youngest in the class—most other students were juniors from Cornell University. His captain was John Metcalfe, and the first mate was Wallace Stark. Wallace went on the sail many voyages as SEA Captain and, as Marine Superintendent, led the design and construction of the SSV Corwith Cramer.

THE VIEW FROM ALOFT: Spring Improvements to Woods Hole Campus

Jim Moynihan, Shore Facilities Coordinator

SEA Semester

As I write this, spring is just around the corner. You would think that the cold, winter months are the not-so-busy-time for SEA’s shore facilities coordinator. On the contrary! I may not be out and about as much, but my days are filled with planning and coordinating our much-needed springtime maintenance activities. I’m fortunate this year to have a six-week window of opportunity to get some larger improvement projects done that would otherwise interrupt student life here on campus.

Pre-College Programs: the Silver Lining for Gap Year & Spring-Start Students

Doug Karlson, communications@sea.edu

width="650"

Congratulations, the acceptance letters have arrived and you’ve been accepted to your school of choice… with one caveat. They don’t have room for you until the spring term.

Before you lose heart and settle for your second choice, remember that this is a regular practice and needn’t affect your overall college experience. In fact, it could be a great opportunity.
