        Kings Point Offers So Much More Than A DegreeYAs a professional well into my career, I look back at my experiences as a midshipman at the USMMA as those that set the stage for success throughout the last 25+ years. At Kings Point, you get to sail the world while earning a degree, a commission, and a license. When you're hundreds of miles out to sea, you learn to be a resourceful problem solver, which is what every organization needs. If you are a prospective student and want to learn more about my experience at the Academy, just send me an "inMail," and I'd be happy to respond.
