by Glenn Jochum, Stony Brook University | Aug. 31, 2015

Joining one of the more than 400 student clubs or organizations at Stony Brook can lead to unexpected journeys. For Sarah McTague ’18, membership in the marine science club sent her all the way across the ocean.

Through the club, the Averill Park, New York, marine science major heard about a Sea Education Association program called SEA Semester, which gave her the opportunity to earn four college credits while making a 3,300-nautical-mile transatlantic crossing in a research vessel – all the way from Woods Hole, Massachusetts, to Cork, Ireland.

Wesleyan University interviews student on Hawaiian voyage

SEA Semester

SEA Semester® in the News:
“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.

Her plans changed last fall when she spied a picture of a sailing ship on a bulletin board in the College Center that was advertising overseas study programs. She ended up spending part of the spring semester on that ship about as far away from Vassar as you can get. Read the full story here.
