Students have opportunities to take classes with us during every year of their program from Freshman Composition to Senior Seminars in the Humanities. What's more, we produce the annual spring Maritime Film Festival in partnership with the library, and we support clubs, lectures, and discussions throughout the year. Each year we recognize excellence in student writing with two awards, given to outstanding writers in C&C courses.
