Wellesley College | Oct. 13, 2015

Though most students choose programs that allow them “to perfect a foreign language, conduct field research, or to gain a new perspective on their major” on dry land, others choose to pursue an adventure that’s a little less landlocked.

Wesleyan University interviews student on Hawaiian voyage

“Ramos ’16 Studies Oceanography, Marine Policy in Hawaii”
by Lauren Rubenstein, Wesleyan University | Aug. 27, 2015

Q: This summer you did a SEA Semester program, “Aloha ‘Aina: People & Nature in the Hawaiian Islands.” How did you become involved in the program?

A: I learned about the program from another Wesleyan student who had done it a few years ago. As a biology and E&ES double major, it sounded like it was right up my alley! At the time, I was thinking about how I was going to apply my studies—what I wanted to do with the rest of my life. This seemed like a good opportunity to explore new options.

SEA Semester does programs at sea all over the world. This summer just happened to be the trip to Hawaii, and I was very excited to go there! I also didn’t want to miss out on a whole semester on campus at Wesleyan, so this worked out well in that it was just five weeks in the summer.
