The world was my campus...
I attended Semester At Sea during their Fall, 1980 voyage. Having the entire world as my own personal campus was one of the most exciting and worth-while experiences of my life. You can learn more about my three+ months at sea (including pictures and stories) by surfing the links in my Voyage Itinerary.

During my voyage two unbelieveable things happened back in the United States: John Lennon was shot dead, and Ronald Reagan was elected president. Both announcements were shocking news on our ship. Most of us did not believe John Lennon could possibly be dead. When the news was finally confirmed (it took at least a day) we were in mourning. Many people cried and talked about John and his life. As for Ronald Reagan being elected, our onboard election was overwhelmingly in favor of Carter and Anderson, so we were very surprised that Reagan won.
