SUNY Maritime cadets arrive back on dry land after a semester at sea
SUNY Maritime cadets arrived back on dry land in the Bronx after a two-month semester at sea.
Cadets say the summer sea term is some of the best hands-on experience they can get. They say they are in charge of the ship, which sailed to five countries. Students need to make a least three trips in order to graduate. Most of the students train for careers in shipping while some head to the military.
SUNY Maritime officials say enrollment has nearly doubled in the past couple of years. They say the Summer at Sea program will be changing in a few years to accommodate the larger number of cadets.
