  Academic Director: Sophie Dennis

  Program Director: Meg Spicer

Primary Goal: to study and apply research-based health and wellness strategies that connect personal choices to academic achievement

  • Spend 5 days on the Schooner Roseway exploring how it feels to be "unplugged" from personal technology
  • Learn about health/wellness issues particular to college students (i.e. sleep patterns, diet & nutrition, models of resilience) in a spectacularly beautiful environment
  • Attend classes and participate in a range of wellness activities (including swimming, snorkeling, hiking and cooking) at two sites on St. John
  • Return to campus in time to present your final project, "Health, Wellness and the College Student," as part of New Student Orientation

Special Considerations

  • All students will learning sailing skills & be part of daily rotations/watches while under sail and at anchor
  • Program requires the ability to get in/out of small boats & climb ladders
  • Willingness to live in tight, co-ed facilities is important on the boat
  • There is NO SMOKING or alcohol consumption on the boat
