Campus Improvement: Stone Cottage

SEA Semester

“What’s old is new again!” That’s according to Sea Education Association Shore Facilities Coordinator Jim Moynihan, who recently oversaw significant renovations to the campus’s Stone Cottage. The granite-walled circa 1889 structure is original to the property and home to SEA’s resident advisor.

Last day: the report

Amelia Macapia & Marco Roberto, Bard High School Early College & Seaholm High School

SEA Semester

To wrap up our time at SEASCape, we had a “field day” (cleaning day!) extravaganza. After breakfast, we split into groups to clean the cabins and Madden Center (I got to scrape salmon and gum out of the bottoms of trash bins mmm! - Amelia) (I got to carry plates and dishes and sort them, wooo - Marco).

With our days at SEASCape dwindling, we started our last academic day with our oceanography class on student chosen topics such as deep sea creatures and climate science. Our next class was Ocean and Society, where we learned about the Disney movie Moana and the history behind the film.

Today was a rainy day full of class for the SEASCape students. We woke up to a breakfast of pancakes and apples, and the rain started just before our first class. Three speakers came in during Oceanography for career day.

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

Doug Karlson,


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.

Lectureship honors Ambrose Jearld, Jr. for promoting diversity

SEA Semester

The Woods Hole scientific community on Saturday honored Ambrose Jearld, Jr., influential NOAA researcher and SEA overseer, with an annual lectureship in recognition of his efforts to make oceanography and marine biology more accessible to a diverse body of students and research faculty.

The surprise presentation was made at Jearld’s retirement party at Fisher House, Church of the Messiah, in Woods Hole. Jearld retired from NOAA Fisheries Service on Sept. 2 after 38 years of service.

The Ambrose Jearld, Jr. Lecture, established and administered by the Diversity Initiative and Diversity Advisory Committee, will be given every summer in Woods Hole by invited scholars, scientists, and authors. The lectures will begin next summer, coinciding with the biennial John K. Bullard Diversity Award.
