Ihab Anwar set sail with his classmates in the fall of 014, hitting France Spain and Morocco before making their way over to the hot and sandy shores of Rio de Janiero. The second that Ihab Anwar set foot I the country, he had immediately fallen in love with it.

He and his classmates soaked up the sun on the shores of Ipanema that entire day, while drinking freshly squeezed juices and snacking on blocks of cheese grilled on wooden skewers.

Dr. Ihab Anwar got the opportunity of a lifetime when he took a semester at sea. He and his classmates set sail from the United Kingdom, and went on to explore 15 different countries before ending in the ports of Fort Lauderdale, FL. Being as he is originally from the UK, Anwar did not do much traveling in his younger years; but he got a heavy dose of exploration from this trip. The ship took the along the coasts of France and Spain, before heading southwest down to Brazil and making its way back up through the Caribbean and to its final destination.

Ihab Anwar - Puerto Rico One of the stops that the ship made before making it onto the continental United States was on the enchanting island of Puerto Rico.

Ihab Anwar: Environmental Concerns

Dr. Ihab Anwar is a foreign exchange student who is currently attending the University of Rhode Island. Ihab has been a marine biology major ever since enrolling in college, as he has always wanted to take a more active role in conserving ocean habitats. But now he has decided to attack this issue from a different angle, and be more involved in the policy making rather than the actual research that is used to form those arguments. Which is why Ihab Anwar is thinking about switching majors to political science.

Ihab Anwar
Anwar is interested in this field because he feels he can have a bigger impact on helping our environment by using his wits, communication skills and his ability to think about the stakeholders in an issue and foreshadow where the opposition would inevitably come from. Dr. Ihab Anwar is passionate about protecting our water resources as well as the animals who live in them. He sees the everyday pollution and news about major oil spills and other environmental disasters, and he rejects the notion that notion ca be done about it.

Ihab Anwar - Environmental Concerns
First things first, he issues such as the droughts in California and sees them as much more of a global issue than the status quo appreciates. California provides not only a majority of the United States’ fruit and vegetables, but it also provides these things all over the world; and if it dries up then all of that food production will be gone.

Ihab Anwar: “The World Was Our Oyster!”

Aspiring marine biologist and astute academic Dr. Ihab Anwar continues to rave about the experiences he attained as passenger of the MV Explorer, a cruise ship that recently took both Anwar and a group of over 100 students from around the world on the journey of a lifetime. A key component of the Semester at Sea Program, now in its 52nd year of operation, the MV Explorer provided students an invaluable opportunity to see and learn about the world in a highly interactive and experiential way.

Ihab Anwar
“The World Was Our Oyster!,” raved England-native Ihab Anwar, who is now spending the year studying at the University of Rhode Island. “I hadn’t realized just how much this voyage would open my eyes, but I will forever be grateful to Mr. Lodge for taking us on such an incredible adventure. Lisbon and St. Petersburg are definitely tied, for me at least, as the highlights of the trip!”

Ihab Anwar, who chronicled each leg of the journey in his private journal, plans on using everything he’s learned and written to produce his essay; a 20-page piece required by each and every At Sea participant at the end of the Spring semester.
