RSMAS students start fresh with snorkeling trip

University of Miami Rosenstiel School of Marine and Atmospheric Science (RSMAS) freshmen and transfer students dove into the new school year with a snorkeling trip held in conjunction with MSC111, an introductory course to marine science. As a way to introduce students to local tropical marine environments, the trips are held each year at the beginning of the semester. Three trips were scheduled the first weekend of September, with each accommodating about 40 students, three student peer counselors and three faculty members. Buses drove the groups to Biscayne National Park where they then boarded boats that sailed out to Biscayne National Underwater Park.

By 7 p.m., the Jorge M. Perez Architecture Center was packed with an audience of 100 guests, including students, faculty and environmental enthusiasts. With the help of graphs, maps, scales and a few eye-catching photos, Soden held the audience’s attention until the last slide.
