Here's your chance: Say anything about your college!

This school is unique because Massachusetts Maritime Academy is a regimented school. This means that everyone has to wear uniforms, wake up at 0650 for morning formation to salute the flag, and conduct room inspections. Everyone must be freshly shaven, clean haircuts, and uniforms ironed. Orientation is almost like a two week boot camp so incoming students can be prepared for the regimented life style.

What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

The advice that I would give parents are that to make sure your son or daughter really wants to attend the college they chose. I have a leadership position at my school and during orientation when we're training the incoming freshmen there are always a select few who are always having a hard time. We pull them aside to ask them whats wrong and why they came here and ninety percent of the time they say, "My parents made me come here". This is their future and shouldn't be decided by the parents. If your child does not want to go to a specific school, don't force them you will only make there college life extremely hard and unmanagable. For the students who want to maximize their college experience, do extra curricular activites. As incoming freshmen sometimes it is hard to transition and make new friends. Engaging i extracurricular activites will give you the chance to make new friends fast. Also really know what the school offers including minors, certain licenses, anything that will help you with your major. Take full advantage of what your school has to offer, if not you will regret it later on.

What kind of person should not attend this school?

The kind of people that should not attend this school are people who are not motivated, lazy, and have a problem with athority. This school has a lot of rules and is a dry campus so students have to comply with strict rules and regulations. This school is not for people who like to sleep in, people who do not like showing up for every class, and people who do not like a lot of resposibility.

What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

I would tell them to take there time when deciding, and think about what it is you want to do when you get out of college. I would make a list of the pro's and con's of all the colleges you are interested in and really focus on what environment you need to be in to do well and focus. A college experience if what you make of it. I believe that what you put in, you will get out. The harder you work the better the outcome will be when you are finished.

What's unique about your campus?

My school has very good job placement, expecially for liscenced majors. You leave this school with a lot of knowledge and 99 % of the time a great paying job.

What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

Honestly, you get what you put into college. You could get everything from college, or nothing at all. If you want to maximize the money, the time, and the effort than you will get everything back. It's hard to say but my school is dedicated to getting involved with regiment or sports or clubs that even the everyday person gets more back than an above average kid at another school. If you want to get good grades you'll get them. If you want to drink all the time, than you'll drink all the time. College is what it is. It's not for everybody but there is a college for everybody. Whether you want to be a chef, a captain of a cruise ship, a doctory or whatever it is, I think its important that students really take a good look at what THEY want, not what their parents want. Although that could be very dangerous but I believe that subconciously everybody has a calling and maybe they go through college and don't find it, maybe they do.

What kind of person should attend this school?

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.

What's the most frustrating thing about your school?

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.

What do you consider the worst thing about your school? Why?

There is nothing to do here. Everybody leaves on the weekends so you either drive somewhere or stay here and be bored.

What do you brag about most when you tell your friends about your school?

I am going to make a lot of money when I get out of school.

What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

I would tell high school seniors to make choices based on comfort on size of the institution. Also to stay on top of the application process, if you fall behind, it can pile up rapidly. Just be smart about these things, keep a cool head and relax. the next four years of your life should be interesting.

What's unique about your campus?

the tight knit communities within each company building. the cohesive learning environment that the campus and the professors provide.
