“With Semester at Sea, over the course of 104 days, I’ve traveled over 23,000 nautical miles, crossed both the equator and prime meridian, and ported in ten different destinations across four continents—North America, Asia, Africa, and Europe, all while earning college credit. As a history and sociology double major my textbooks came to life in front of my eyes as I made the world my classroom. Through the course of the semester I witnessed cultures, landscapes, and histories that I never knew existed and left the ship with a new appreciation of the world around me.”-Lauren Gieseking
