Hear straight from our students why they decided to join us and what their experience was like!
At the end of each course, our whole team gets dinner together to read what our students have written in our onboard guestbook (and get misty and instantly nostalgic).
Here are just a few selected quotes:
“I was nervous coming in, but I really had no reason to be. You are all such kind, patient teachers that I was never worried about trying a new task or asking a dumb question.” -Taylor
“This week has been one of the best educational experiences I’ve ever had. I really have always dreamed of working with sharks and I am so thankful for this opportunity to learn and develop skills in such an uplifting environment. The relationship you have with each other and kindness and understanding you show towards us is the epitome of a dream work environment.” -Abbie
"I am coming out of this course feeling ready to begin my own career with sharks and I can’t thank the Field school staff enough for helping me begin my future." - Kenadee, Dalhousie University
"Where do I even start? This has been, without shadow of a doubt, the most educational, inspirational, and most generous course I’ve ever part-taken in." - Eimear, Dublin, Ireland
This course will be a defining week in the life of any student, especially those pursuing a scientific career. My advice to students thinking about taking this course: do it. If one week aboard the Garvin does not change the way you think about ocean conservation, your career path, and the fantastically intricate world around you, nothing will. For this course, the sharks are just icing on the cake. - Tyler, West Virginia University
This has honestly been the best experience of my entire life so far. The hands-on experience and knowledge I’ve gained from both courses does not compare to anything I’ve learned in a classroom - Kirsti, Dalhousie University
