College and Boating?

Hey There! Captain Chris Here!/lib/img/gallery/img08651568.jpg

With another school year starting, who says just because you go away to school that you can’t go boating. Better yet, why not get an education in something that you love doing, like boating. Whether it’s naval engineering at the University of Michigan or archeology at the University of West Florida, boating can be a part of any education.

Just imagine getting up every day and spending the day on the water. Better yet, sending your kid to college to do something that they love is worth every penny. I can remember going to school and visiting my friends at Michigan State. We would get up in the morning and join the water ski club for a couple of runs. What can be better than waking up knowing that you are getting college credit to water ski?

BoatUS recently published a great article on the Boatiest Schools in America”. If you have not checked it out, you should.

What boating activities did you do when you were in school? Does your career involve boating now? Do you have any words of advice for kids entering college and trying to figure out what they want to do when they grow up?
