06/03/17 - Adapting to Our New Environment

Nahant, MA

Colin, Fynn, Sofia, & Henry

We started off the day with “I am a star” exercises which affected us because it’s something we don’t often do. Also it was around people we didn’t really know. Seeing the ship for the first time we had many preconceived expectations. Many of us thought it would be a bit differen…

03/14/17 - Ship, Shipmate, Self

Culebrita

JWOs for the Day: Kai, Kitori, Ricquan

One of the fundamental values students learn on Roseway is the phrase "Ship, Shipmate, Self". It is important to balance taking care of the ship, take care of your shipmates, and take care of yourself. We hope students apply this concept to their lives after they depart by taking…
