In admissions, we have a tradition of putting our skills to good use too. Each year, we close the office for a day and volunteer our services to a local organization.

Our job last week was to help prepare for summer Shipboard Education sea/land excursions. We cleaned, surveyed and inventoried supplies – including about thirty tents. Some of us had never put up a tent before. Others are camping veterans. All of us worked hard and had fun.
