Semester at Sea changed my life. From living on the ship, to traveling and experiencing new places – there is nothing like it. Through the classes, lectures, and community I built on the ship, I learned how to respect, engage, and be in new places. Learning about peoples history and culture before port arrival allowed me to connect and respect the places I was privileged to visit, a skill that I’ve carried far beyond the voyage. SAS taught me how to travel, it connected me to the world and the earth, allowing me to continue to journey this incredible planet we call home.
