For the last 50 years students from across the U.S. have been able to hop on a ship and spend the semester living and learning while at sea. The program is known as Semester at Sea. DePaul University sociology major Molly McVay is one of them. She just made a stop in Cuba. She joins us to talk about that experience and the time she’s spent in 13 other countries while traveling on the ship this fall. (Photo: Courtesy of Semester at Sea)
