On June 11, 2021 National University “Odessa Maritime Academy” hosted a marathon-meeting “We and the Sea” for everyone to get acquainted with the history and educational opportunities in the University. The guests had the opportunity to inspect all the buildings of our university, visit gyms, feeling like a real sailor, plunge into the wonderful world of cadet life and discover new opportunities for the best professions. Visitors were provided with comprehensive consultations and excursions to the most interesting places of the university. There was also a children’s room for the youngest visitors, where young guests could learn a lot of interesting things about maritime professions in a playful way. We hope that the meeting was fruitful and we will see our guests as our cadets!
