Olivia is studying off-campus at Williams-Mystic’s Maritime Studies program. At this program, she is studying: History, Literature, Marine Sciences, and Marine Policy with topics that range from “Music of the Sea” to “Shipsmithing.” Olivia is an Environmental Studies major who loves spending time with her friends at Skidmore, but she still enjoys the small community that her job at a sleep-away summer camp offered, which makes Williams-Mystic the perfect place for her off-campus study experience.

Olivia has only been at Williams-Mystic for a week, but she has already written so much about her experience from packing and getting ready for the semester to her very first week at the program! She wrote a detailed daily account of her first week on the program, which makes it feel as if the reader is right there with her. The blog post ended with Olivia leaving for a voyage to San Juan, which she will write about when she gets back to Mystic. This is not something that you want to miss out on, so get reading here!
