Shipboard Living Learning Community
This program, which was developed in 2009, allows incoming students in the Marine Transportation and Engineering Majors to enhance their learning experience.

These classes have been developed by the TSGB officers and Professors in the specific major. This will allows for the students going on the TSGB cruise during their 1st summer to be well prepared and to be familiar with TSGB as a whole. Residene Hall Officers aboard TSGB also provide specialize programming to support ship familiarization. Programs indlude btua re nto limited to ship tours, pre cruise breifings, syestems tours, etc.
