Surviving Graduate School

A group of new graduate students in the MIT/WHOI Joint Program try on emergency survival suits, also called "Gumby suits," during the 2010 Jake Peirson Summer Cruise. Each year, the 10-day cruise in the North Atlantic aboard one of the sailing vessels operated by Sea Education Association welcomes students to the world of oceanography and also helps them bond with the classmates with whom they will study, work alongside, and commiserate for the next four to six years. The annual cruise is named in honor of Jake Peirson, who worked at WHOI from 1967 to 1996 as Assistant Dean and Associate Dean/Registrar.
