Founders Day: Celebrating 50 Years of Shipboard Education

On October 22, 1963, the first voyage of Semester at Sea, then known as the University of Seven Seas, set sail out of New York City on a journey around the world.  Over the past fifty years, Semester at Sea has changed the face of global education, visiting over 60 countries while touching the lives of more than 60,000 alumni from 1,700 colleges and universities worldwide.

Today we celebrate 50 years of shipboard education and the enormous impact that it has had on the lives of all of those involved, both past and present.
