As a students at Cal Maritime, you feel very cozy. It is small so you get to know most of the students and faculty. Also the professors know who you are as a student. Most people haven't heard about our school, people think it is a military school because of the uniforms that we are forced to wear. The uniforms are a real drag because even if we don't have class we still have to wear them to go to the cafeteria and get food or to go anywhere around campus. Formations are also a drag, waking up at 7:00 am every Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays for about 30 minutes just to listen to announcements, when your first class doesn't start until 1:30 pm. Even though it can be a hassle sometimes, I am positive that I would chose this school again if I had the chance, because of the small class sizes, high job placement, international experience, new fond friendships, and the cool clubs.
Review California Maritime Academy
Rugby, sailing , crew and basketball are top in nation for small schools and usually ranked. The other sport are okay. Most sports don't recruit and you just try out with the exception of basketball. Saying that, it is very impressive that most sports do play against some d1 and d2 schools. Facilities are good. Spirit is okay.
The athletics department at our school sucks. There aren't many sports that one can participate in. One thinks that after a whole week of orientation one would introduce the sports on campus. The only sports that I know of are guys rugby, men's/women's basketball, men's/women's water polo, men's/women's crew, and the sailing team. I have never been to any game at Cal Maritime but I am going to guess that the fan support is not that great.
