For over 100 years, Massachusetts Maritime Academy has been preparing women and men for exciting and rewarding careers on land and sea. As the nation's finest co-ed maritime college, MMA challenges students to succeed by balancing a unique regimented lifestyle with a typical four-year college environment. As a member of the cadet corps you will live, study, sail, work and play in an atmosphere that encourages you to be your best.
Sea Term Communication Instructions
The below information should be provided to all friends and family that may have an interest in the upcoming Sea Term. Mail should be sent via AIRMAIL only, posted about ten days prior to our arrival date. Only packages received from our campus will be accepted aboard because of our security measures. Please contact any of the below officers if you need to have critically important materials be sent to the ship.
All ship's crew and cadets may register for an email account that uses satellites. Unlike shore side systems, this system charges for each message, based upon the quantity of text. The system can handle attachments and pictures, but users should be warned that this can drive up the cost significantly.
Precede all addresses with:
NAME, CADET DIVISION OR CREW POSITION
Concerned persons may email the Academy's Sea Term email account at: firstname.lastname@example.org. A duty officer will respond during business hours. In the event of an emergency regarding
