The club also hosts numerous events throughout each semester. On Saturday, Oct. 19, the MSC will travel to the Academy of Natural Sciences with the Sociology and Anthropology Club.

On Sunday, Nov. 10, the MSC will be hosting an event open to all students and the public: a whale and dolphin watching trip in Cape May in collaboration with the S.A.V.E. environmental club. Tickets cost $10 for students with valid I.D. and $15 for non-student adults. The group will meet at 11:30 a.m. Nov. 10 in the Campus Center lobby and then depart for the trip on two campus buses. Anyone interested in participating is encouraged to dress warmly.

“I have participated in the watch tour for the past two years,” said member Brandon Henry, “and we have gotten fantastic viewings of dolphins, shorebirds, beautiful ocean scenery, and of course, migrating humpback whales! Last year, we spotted three on our tour! Be sure to check out the Marine Science Club!
