  • One Step Ahead

    August 18, 2014 - As Henry Ford once said, “If you think you can do a thing or think you can't do a thing, you’re right.” MMA’s Regimental Staff learned this adage early on –probably in Orientation!


    Riding the Tide to the Top

    August 18, 2014 - “Never give up, for that is just the place and time that the tide will turn.” Harriet Beecher Stowe. That’s exactly what the Academy’s Regimental Staff (top cadets) did. They persevered, met all the challenges and rode the tide to the top.


    Pan-Mass bikers pedal for cancer research

    August 04, 2014 - It was a soggy day for a bike ride Saturday as cyclists by the thousands cruised into Massachusetts Maritime Academy for a pit stop during the 35th annual Pan-Mass Challenge, a weekend-long bike-a-thon that raises money for cancer research.

    August 01, 2014 - Less than 10 years ago, he was on the outside looking in. Fired. His dreams and vision seemingly shattered in a vote by a majority of trustees who wanted to keep the status quo.


    Dazzling fireworks display caps Cape Cod Canal celebration

    August 01, 2014 - For three years, the committee planning the Cape Cod Canal centennial celebration bet with money it didn't have.

And, of course, a clear, sunny day was anything but a guarantee.

    Letter from Commandant to Cadets

    July 21, 2014 - In preparation for the upcoming fall term, a letter was sent from the Commandant to all cadets:


    Fun – An Underrated Commodity

    July 14, 2014 - A few years ago Plato noted, “You can discover more about a person in an hour of play than in a year of conversation.” More recently Brian Sutton Smith, America’s premier “play” scholar”, observed that play is not just joyful and energizing — it's deeply involved with human development and intelligence.
