It's pretty. From the sunsets over the bay, to the sunrise behind the Bourne Bridge, to the Training ship's imposing presence. The reflection area near the sea is breathtaking, and there's often people there meditating. The weather is good for most of the year, or as much as anybody could ask in New England. Large ships of all types float quickly by on the canal, and fishermen are ever-present. I appreciate the regimented lifestyle for keeping me honest, and the competitive attitude for keeping me constantly busy, from 0630 until my head hits the pillow at 2300.
I think this school isn't for one type of person or another. The diversity in philosophies and reasons for being here is truly daunting, and something I still haven't fully comprehended. If I were to generalize the cadets here at the Mass Maritime Academy, I would say that we all possess a drive to get things done to the best of our ability. Some want to get whatever needs to be done right away, others go at much slower, more cautious pace. There's also a drive to make sure that everyone here is part of regiment, and not just on paper. The fraternity, and general respect for one another is something I'm hard pressed to find anywhere else. We all share a common experience as freshmen during our orientation, and we all endure the same struggles of regimentation and rigorous studies. It brings us closer together, which in turn helps us keep each other going in times of struggle or hardship. So I would say my opinion of Mass Maritime is a very good one, and I hope those both in class and in the future will feel the same.

I would tell myself to go to Mass Maritime Academy and stay disciplined with my school work. The academy will keep me away from trouble and on the right path to success. I would also tell myself to follow what you think is right and to think outside the box. Always keep an open mind and always have a great attitude toward life. Point out the positive traits in others as well as yourself to remind you how good you are and how great you can be. Law of Attraction.
the tight knit communities within each company building. the cohesive learning environment that the campus and the professors provide.
There is nothing to do here. Everybody leaves on the weekends so you either drive somewhere or stay here and be bored.
how much of a head game this really is
A person that attends Massachusetts Maritime Academy is willing to accept a non traditional college expierence. They are involved with a regiment and a demanding academic schedule that emphasizes time management. A person applying to the Academy usually is focused on the maritime industry either business, biology, or engineering. This school thrives on diversifying its self within the maritime industry and has a very strong tradition.
I am going to make a lot of money when I get out of school.
MMA is very challenging because it is regimented and has a tuff course load, but the career opportunities after graduation are great.
Classmates work hard to finish ontime and get out of here.
A person that does not like to listen and follow orders from other people.
The most frustrating thing about my school is the social life. Unless you have to stay on campus on the weekends you go elsewhere. We have a very strict alcohol policy and mandatory drug tests. The regiment does not look fondly on fraternization (inter class socialization). The quality of food selection is very poor especially dinner. There is only one place to eat on campus. Maybe if the mess deck was healtier, better tasting, and quality of food was higher than this would not be very frustrating.
