I spent a lot of time researching different study abroad programs and decided on Sea|mester because it was such a unique program that offered aspects of a program that I was looking for like SCUBA diving and sailing.
I was a biochemistry major and knew that finding a program that I was passionate about that would also transfer to my college would be difficult, so I decided to work hard to finish my B.S. in 3 ½ years, so that I could choose any study abroad program I wanted to attend. That decision allowed me to really search far and wide to find a program that I really wanted to attend.
Sea|mester really is a top-notch program that provides so much value. I didn’t have much experience sailing, other than a two-week summer camp, but I knew that I wanted to further pursue sailing. I also loved traveling and wanted to learn how to SCUBA dive. Sea|mester really checked all the boxes.
It had a small group size (around 20 people), allowed me to learn how to sail and SCUBA dive. I also was interested in oceanography and marine biology, which were classes offered during the program.
