Students spend Labor Day examining sea life. 

Members of Shattuck-St. Mary’s The Major spent their Labor Day exploring the SEA LIFE Aquarium, located inside of the Mall of America, on Monday, September 5. Led by Director of The Major Craig Peck and Payton Sender ’18, who has conducted extensive marine biology research, the students enjoyed exhibits that examined thousands of sea creatures, including sharks, sea turtles, rays, jellyfish, and more.

The Major is SSM’s newest Center of Excellence, and allows participating students to develop and undertake a series of dynamic experiences designed around their own personal interests. Each student is a member of a cohort of fellow students whom they support and challenge under the guidance of a dedicated faculty member who provides structure, guidance, and mentorship throughout the whole program. For additional information, visit The Major on the SSM website.
