For over 100 years, Massachusetts Maritime Academy has been preparing women and men for exciting and rewarding careers on land and sea. As the nation's finest co-ed maritime college, MMA challenges students to succeed by balancing a unique regimented lifestyle with a typical four-year college environment. As a member of the cadet corps you will live, study, sail, work and play in an atmosphere that encourages you to be your best.
My time at Massachusetts Maritime Academy has been extremely worthwhile. It included academics, leadership experience within the regiment, playing on the softball team; all contributed to the relationships which will last a lifetime. The diverse Emergency Management curriculum provided an education on a broad scale of EM topics.The department's networking, enhanced my cooperative experiences to include experience with the Harrington Hospital, the Worcester County Sheriff's Office, Hanover Insurance, and the Ile-A-Vache, Haiti Cooperative. The leadership experience I have gained within the regiment will only strengthen my ability to lead l in the field. These past 4 years have molded me into the individual that I am today and I would not have wanted any other college experience. I will be accepting a Commission in the United States Coast Guard where I will work in the Marine Safety field and will be involved in various missions, including Vessel Inspections.
