I chose USMMA because of the excellent athletic program, and the long-term value of the academics. The attention the team showed me while I was there on a visit, as well as the spirit and experience of Coaches Tedesco and Lopez helped seal the deal. Go Mariners!
I chose the US Merchant Marine Academy because of the academics, camaraderie, and the opportunities that await merchant mariners after graduation. In addition, Coach Tedesco and the swim team were extremely welcoming and can’t wait to have me on the team. Go Mariners!
