Program:
Go Underseas

Written by Michaela

I'm an avid Beatles fan who get excited at the slight whiff of a meatball, so I knew this would be a great program for me.

Go Underseas provided me with a magical 1-month experience underseas in a yellow submarine (yes, it was actually a yellow submarine). While the 5am wakeup call is tough, the day was jam packed with exciting activities. I really enjoyed my eggs breakfast accompanied by The Breakfast Club theme song playing in the background (I appreciate a good ode to John Hughes). Underwriting was a good time to settle down and prep for the day. I usually wrote about meatball subs. The turkey sub was great (although I would have preferred tuna 2x a day).

The staff were kind and helpful, as well! They were always willing to help me and my good buddy Joenny. The team manager, Anna was extremely organized and helpful. Mr. Dunkle, the submarine driver, operated the sub with ease which made us feel safe. The course leader, Tucker was full of energy and ideas, and our Captain Mitch did regular check-ins to see how we were doing. The only thing missing from the trip was my good friend Val who chose to go on the Space Cruiser trip instead. We really went in opposite directions on this one, huh?!

Overall, Go Underseas was an amazing program with amazing people. Everyone should try it out!

These people rock. They really do! I can't think of anything I would improve.

Secure this area until the alert is canceled. Give me regular reports. Do you know what's going on? Maybe it's another drill. What was that? Oh, it's nothing. Don't worry about it.

Obi-Wan Kenobi...Obi-Wan? Now thats a name I haven't heard in a long time...a long time. I think my uncle knew him. He said he was dead. Oh, he's not dead, not...not yet. You know him! Well of course, of course I know him. He's me! I haven't gone by the name Obi-Wan since oh, before you were born. Then the droid does belong to you. Don't seem to remember ever owning a droid. Very interesting... I think we better get indoors. The Sandpeople are easily startled but they will soon be back and in greater numbers. Threepio! Where am I? I must have taken a bad step... Can you stand? We've got to get out of here before the Sandpeople return. I don't think I can make it. You go on, Master Luke. There's no sense in you risking yourself on my account. I'm done for. No, you're not. What kind of talk is that? Quickly, son...they're on the move.

That malfunctioning little twerp. This is all his fault! He tricked me into going this way, but he'll do no better. Wait, what's that? A transport! I'm saved! Over here! Help! Please, help! Artoo-Detoo! It's you! It's you!

There she is. See-Threepio, do you copy? For the moment. Uh, we're in the main hangar across from the ship. We're right above you. Stand by. You came in that thing? You're braver that I thought. Nice! Come on! It's them! Blast them! Get back to the ship! Where are you going? Come back! He certainly has courage. What good will it do us if he gets himself killed? Come on! I think we took a wrong turn. There's no lock! That oughta hold it for a while. Quick, we've got to get across. Find the control that extends the bridge. Oh, I think I just blasted it. They're coming through! Here, hold this. Here they come! For luck!

He says he's found the main computer to power the tractor beam that's holding the ship here. He'll try to make the precise location appear on the monitor. The tractor beam is coupled to the main reactor in seven locations. A power loss at one of the terminals will allow the ship to leave. I don't think you boys can help. I must go alone. Whatever you say. I've done more that I bargained for on this trip already. Be patient, Luke. Stay and watch over the droids. But he can...

Go Underseas

Written by Mallory

Life is not better down where it's wetter, take it from me. I'm used to working all day, out in the sun slaving away. Was looking forward to devotin my full time to floatin under the sea... Turns out this program is all washed up.

I was promised troves of treasures untold. Gadgets and gizmos aplenty, whozits and whatzits galore and thingamabobs (at least twenty). NOTHING.

Professor Ursula is such a witch. I feel bad for the poor unfortunate souls who have to make it through her lecture every day. She does know how to keep a class quiet though.

The seaweed is always greener, In somebody else's lake, You dream about going up there, But that is a big mistake, Just look at the world around you, Right here on the ocean floor, Such wonderful things surround you, What more is you lookin' for?

Going on this program with Go Underseas was life changing! Who would've known you could have such a great time on a submarine?

The views are truly unlike anything you'll ever sea... blue, blue, and more blue! Shades of blue that you never knew existed. They also allowed me to bring my dog with me on the submarine. The only condition was that I had to change his name, so he became "Subwoofer".

I rated the safety as a 10 because submarines are safer than airplanes. Proof in the fact is that there are more airplanes in the water than submarines in the air.

Be sure to bring binoculars, solar powered lights, and houseplants...

I'll leave you with a submarine joke:

"Ever hear the joke about the broken submarine?"
"It didn't go down well."

Yes, I recommend this program

Go Underseas

Written by Anna

I loved my study abroad experience deeply.

I thought I would miss fresh air, but turns out, you become a much better student when you eliminate all outside distractions + communication from those pesky land dwellers. To entertain myself, I'd do my homework and challenge myself with the extra credit assignments (I'm rating academics an 8 out of 10 because the underwater basket weaving courses could have been more in-depth as Valerie mentions below). *bonus* I loved the fact that Chips Ahoy were served every day for dessert as well.

Overall, a 10/10 and would not recommend returning to dry land.

Eliminate all re-surfacing field trips. It takes away from the authenticity of the submarine experience.
Yes, I recommend this program
