The 72nd semester of the Williams-Mystic program began this week when students arrived (with snow flurries!) on January 21st. The diverse Spring 2013 class represents 10 states, 3 countries, 12 majors and 9 colleges; this group of talented and skilled students combined have run in three marathons, rung the Williams College bell, gone free diving and spearfishing, drawn cartoons for their college newspaper, and play guitar, piano, cello, violin, and sing.
During their semester, the Spring ’13 class will become shipmates and close friends as they live and study on their campus at the Mystic Seaport Museum in Mystic, CT. In approximately one week, they will fly to Key West, Florida, where they will board the SSV Corwith Cramer and begin the first of three extended field seminars.
