The SeaState was an incredible experience. Hands down one of the best college classes I have ever taken. This full immersion course gave me a taste of another country's culture. I was able to see so much of Panama in just a short period amount of time. The itinerary was packed with fun events such as seeing the Panama Canal, staying in Casco Viejo (Old Town Panama City), surfing vacant breaks, island hopping, spear fishing, giving back to local communities, and much more! The class was super interesting and the professor was very encouraging to the course subject. I would do it again in a heart beat.

The Sea State provides a life experience that you can write on your resume?! I don't know if you can ever truly quantify a life changing trip that provides you with endless opportunities to improve as a person, but I do know one thing; it was quantified in that it was worth three upper division credits, for writing fun challenging stories, surfing, meeting new people, and spending time in an amazing place that will always flood you with fond memories of warmth and passion for a time you will never forget.

This was the best college class I have ever taken because it was a full immersion class. Service work, surfing, writing, collaboration, adventure, film/photography were integrated into our lives everyday during the course. I learned more about journalism and was able to reflect on my own life and what direction I want to go in. As a film student I was able to create a film about the trip as a resume builder and to practice those skills.
