    It’s very chill. Relaxed. Some classes are hard and if you are pursuing to be a bridge officer or engineer you will be wearing uniforms. All and all I spent 3&1/2 years for marine transportation. Their main problem is getting all the sea time since they don’t have a large enough vessel to support their students. More of a college than the other maritime academies. A lot of the good professors have moved on since I graduated in 2016. Hope this helps.

    Sophomore in high school? If so I won’t be here when you get here. It’s a good school. A lot of people aren’t happy to be here, but that’s just Corp life, it grows on you and it’s what you make of it. I’m studying engineering and from what I understand there is plenty of jobs for engineers once I get out.
    The campus has gotten a complete makeover in the last 8 years or so and the only serious downsides in my opinion is some of the administrative staff has repetitively proven not to put students first, and don’t think about what they say/do before they say or do it…a lot of people with crap on the USTS General Rudder but once again, she’s what you make…she does nothing perfect, but she does a little bit of everything.
    The Corp is smaller, so class sizes are smaller as well, meaning it is easier to get ahead of help when you need it. Everyone here is in the same boat, we are all dealt the same cards, so we all help one another our best we can- plus Galveston is an interesting place…I personally wouldn’t live here, but it’s a good place to study!
    Unless you can get instate tuition/more scholarships at another academy (or KP), I’d recommend it!
