  • Revisiting the Writing On the Wall

    October 23, 2014 - No - really writing on the wall - a full 302 (paperback) novel, sixty feet high, twenty feet wide – on a glass wall! Designers of the ABS Information Commons building came up with the idea, a focal point for this unique, state-of-the-art library.



    September 29, 2014 - …One Magnificent Classroom! Well that’s not what OMC REALLY stands for but it does expand the explanation of the Orientation Mini-Cruise. This fifty hour exercise is a fairly recent addition to the freshman orientation experience – 2007 to be exact… and was the brainchild of Capt. Ed Rozak, Commandant of Cadets.


    Feels Like a Hobby

    September 22, 2014 - … pays like a job. These conditions don’t usually coincide! But then again, there is nothing ordinary about Massachusetts Maritime Academy!


    Classical grad sworn in as Mass Maritime trustee

    September 15, 2014 - It was not lost on Maj. Marisol Chalas that the day she was sworn in as a Massachusetts Maritime Academy trustee was Sept. 11.


    The One... Card

    September 03, 2014 - Massachusetts Maritime Academy has entered into a partnership with Santander Bank to provide students with a state-of-the-art identification (ID) card. As part of the Santander Universities division, Santander provides colleges with custom branded ID cards, called a “One Card”.


    2nd Company Wins Admirals Cup!

    September 03, 2014 - Keeping an eye on the prize, senior cadet leadership provides direction, leadership, and motivation for cadet candidates – all in pursuit of the coveted Admirals Cup which is awarded at the end of the two-week orientation. Broken down into 7 categories, Admirals Cup consists of; knowledge (20%), esprit de corps (20%), intramurals (20%), physical training (5%), Maritime competitions (10%), marching (20%), and monomy racing (5%).


    Ship Shapers

    August 25, 2014 - These two cadets have apparently had Massachusetts Maritime Academy imprinted on their DNA. One day soon the pair will be able and licensed to operate a ship, one on deck, the other below in the engine room.


    Off the Beaten Path …

    August 22, 2014 - …along the road less traveled – or, on the road not taken: “Two roads diverged in a wood, and I - took the one less traveled by. And that has made all the difference.” Robert Frost. No matter how you cut it, the Academy is not your everyday college. And that is precisely why it offers more than an everyday experience or ordinary rewards!


    Riding the Tide to the Top

    August 21, 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.


    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!
