The Muster Project

Welcoming new students and giving them the opportunity to connect with those who've been on campus for awhile is the goal of The Muster Project. This new approach to acquainting new students with life at NMC before the semester starts offers the following:

  • Two or three-day sailing experiences on Champion, a beautiful 40’ sailboat
  • Mentoring by a second-year student
  • Follow-up pizza parties to stay connected
  • Free membership to the Maritime Heritage Alliance »
