I think the school deserves at least a nine for two main reasons. One being that the campus is beautiful and enjoyable, especially considering it is right on the water but also close to other cities such as San Francisco. The other reason is that from what I have heard from other students, the courses and opportunities that the students work hard in classes and on ships but also enjoy the work itself.
California Maritime Academy is a great college located along the beautiful northern California bay area. It offers a little something for every personality type here with a variety of sports and clubs. It is a small campus so you get a lot of hands on experience in our interactive lab type courses.
