Back in session

Students at Maine Maritime Academy are back on campus and classes have begun. From the annual ship jump to convocation and MUG Olympics, students spent the past week settling into the school year. The incoming students in the program started their Regimental Preparatory Training last week, meeting with all other students for convocation on Monday, August 28. Students at convocation, stand in salute during the singing of the national anthem. At right, a student in Alpha company makes the jump.
