I got to dive into environmental communication (the field I want to pursue after college); SEA's leadership education is spectacular; and I learned how to sail. Nothing compares to climbing out on the bow while we're crashing up and down on eight-foot waves. - Middlebury College View Entire Review
Definitely worthwhile. Gained knowledge about sailing, the ocean, and how to do lots of scientific procedures for research - Middlebury College View Entire Review
