Describe your favorite campus traditions.


My school is best known for its' strong marine science/maritime studies program. We have a beautiful campus located a stone's throw away from the beach, with a gorgeous view and great scenery. The campus is extremely small, but it's fun that everybody knows everybody and all my professors have been great.


Our school is best known for its marine science program. Since we are right on the water it gives the campus a lot of resources to work with right in our back yard to be able to provide to the marine sciences. For example, the species like the invasive crab species that live in the tidal pools on our campus were used in a biological experiment for students in this major.
