Students dream about their graduation – getting “finned,” moving the tassel from one side of the mask to the other, and watching the bubbles rise to the surface. Wait . . . what? Okay, so it’s not the typical graduation ceremony. We’re talking about an underwater graduation ceremony – for students who minor in scuba.
But you don’t have to minor in scuba to take those classes. You don’t even have to be a traditional student; there are special classes just for faculty and staff.
One of the cool parts of the program is going on a scuba trip and practicing your skills in the open waters. The group goes to beautiful underwater destinations, including Cozumel, Curacao, and Grand Cayman. Not only are you earning a really fun minor, but you’re also acquiring skills that you can use on any tropical vacation.
