Ihab Anwar : A Detailed Diary

Ihab Anwar is a college student from Manchester, England. He is currently enrolled at the University of Rhode Island, where he is studying marine biology. But he spent the Fall 2014 semester at sea, as part of a program called Semester at Sea.

The Semester at Sea program, he says, is intended to expose its students to the world and its interconnection and complexity. The voyage lasted a little more than three months, departing from England on August 24 and completing a circumnavigation of the globe on December 8 at Port Everglades in Fort Lauderdale, Florida.

Ihab Anwar says he feels extremely fortunate to have been able to participate in the program. “I saw so much, and met so many incredible people,” he says. “I can barely put it into words.” He says that he will have to find the words, though, because he is obligated to write an extended paper on his experiences.

He says that he has plenty to work with and to jog his memory, because Dr. Ihab Anwar kept a detailed diary during his trip. The longest entries, he says, are about the various ports of call they made – seventeen in all. But there are a number of shorter entries (he wrote in it daily) that describe the other students in the program (he had a serious crush on an American student named Jenna and they’ve pledge to stay in touch) and the sometimes monotonous, day-to-day reality of a long sea voyage.

Ihab Anwar and the other students were required to take classes on board the MV Explorer (he met Jenna in his Introduction to Public Health class). Most of the courses were worth three credits, but he says the trip itself was of inestimable value.
