Program Reviews:
Hannah Nicole Colwell, Maymester 2016 Participant
This was the best trip I've ever made away from home. Everything you learn in class is directly related to the world you're experiencing. I made some great friends and had the time of my life.

Bryce E Finch, Maymester 2016 Participant
This was the most immersive and exciting trip or experience I've ever been on. We learned and did so much, and it gave me a new appreciation for not just the natural landscape and ecosystems of Costa Rica, but even in our own backyard.

Maymester 2016 Participant
Have fun and try new things!

Definitely a must go if you are considering a short study abroad program.
