SEA Announces 2015-16 Armin E. Elsaesser Fellowship Winner

Anne Broache, communications@sea.edu

SEA Semester

If you could follow one dream that has been elusive because of the demands of work or study, what would it be?

That’s the question that SEA posed this spring when we invited applications from alumni, faculty, staff, and past employees for the Armin E. Elsaesser Fellowship. The Fellowship program, established in 1987, is in memory of Armin E. Elsaesser III, a sailor, educator, and adventurer who sailed on several cruises aboard our now-retired ship, the Westward, and taught Maritime Studies on shore. Armin’s strong curiosity and sense of adventure inspired SEA students and staff alike.

Now we’re excited to announce that Timothy Dwyer, a SEA Semester W-160 alumnus, is our 2015-2016 winner.

About Those SEA Semester Messages in Bottles….

Anne Broache, communications@sea.edu

SEA Semester

On SEA Semester voyages, our students often take part in the time-honored tradition of scrawling a message, rolling it into a bottle, and plunking it into the ocean. Where these communiqués end up can help us to better understand ocean currents—and they’re a fun way to reach strangers we may never otherwise meet.

In the last week alone, we’ve heard of two separate instances where beach strollers have spotted our students’ bottles—an intriguing enough coincidence that we felt we had to share it on this blog.
