Experience

Student Stories & Mentors

Who better to share the transformative Semester at Sea experience than students themselves? You can chat with recent alumni directly via our Global Ambassador Program or Diversity Peer Mentor Program, or you can scroll below and explore more student stories!

Global Ambassador Program

Global Ambassadors are recent alumni who are still enrolled as undergraduate students — possibly at your campus or a campus near you! They are trained to answer questions you may have about the program and share their unique experiences.

Diversity Peer Mentor Program

Before and after each voyage, SAS can connect recent alumni with prospective voyagers who share similar identities. This is designed to be an informal mentoring program to share personal voyage experiences. Although we cannot guarantee to meet all mentorship requests, we will do our best to pair as many mentors and mentees as possible.

Just 1️⃣ day left in Port #2-- Mombasa, Kenya! 🇰🇪

We have had so many incredible experiences in this beautiful country, including visiting the capital through one of our field programs, Nairobi Adventure!

In Nairobi, voyagers visited a Giraffe Center, Elephant Trust, ...Kereita Forest, and Ocean Sole-- an innovative NGO that upcycles used sandals collected from beaches and the ocean to make colorful, wild-animal-themed souvenirs. 🐘🦒

Check out some of our favorite memories! 📸

Who's on board the MV World Odyssey? Meet Dorcas, our SP23 Tutu Ubuntu Scholar from Kenya! 🇰🇪

Dorcas grew up in a children’s home in Kibera slums, the largest urban slum of Africa located in Nairobi, Kenya. She was filled with excitement when a SAS alum who was volunteering at... the home told stories from her own voyage. Dorcas immediately knew that Semester at Sea was something she wanted to do someday. But how would she make this dream a reality?
