Our Semester at Sea Site
Not-So New News Flashes:
  1. A bottle was found by a man named Howard Merkel with a message from Jonathan Kennedy, Jeffrey R.A. Kirkpatrick, Jordan Beard, Kelly Berkle, Meghan Murphy, and Molly Petrie from our voyage! More information will be posted here as details become available. The discussion was diverted from private email to the MSN site.
  2. The SS Universe Explorer, which was created as the BRASIL in 1958, has been scrapped! See the ship at the following web sites:
  3. The Institute for Shipboard Education has unfortunately moved away from Pittsburgh and is now with University of Virginia.

Our Blog

I now realize this was a blog (although not an interactive one) before the term was invented. I previously called it an "illustrated journal," built and uploaded during the Voyage, with over 500 pictures of our trip during the Fall Semester, 1999

Note: This is not the official Semester at SeaŽ web site;
it just chronicles our personal experiences in the Fall 1999 voyage!
Semester at SeaŽ is a registered mark of the Institute for Shipboard Education.

Well, we're home now. What a trip! If any of you is considering this trip, but aren't sure if it is worth it, put your worries aside. This was a trip of a lifetime! Please feel free to rejoin my regular web page in progress at www.pitt.edu/~galletta

On March 28, 2002, I received the following fortune at a Lulu's Noodle House. Yes, I agree!

Note: If you went on this trip and your face is clearly visible in any photo, please e-mail me at galletta@katz.pitt.edu and I will include your name. Toward the beginning I didn't appreciate the importance of including names, and in the end it was difficult to collect this information for all the shots I had already taken. Please contact me if yours is misspelled, too! Also, I'd like to use some of Sam Ngo's words I found on his site: "Feel free to use any pictures you like in my website. However, please give me credit [and] drop a line saying that you're doing so."
