The Professors (Scott and Andrew) and our TA (John David Curlis) were absolutely excellent and made my Costa Rica Experience truly amazing.

best decision I've made throughout my collegiate experience

Maymester 2016 Participant
Costa Rica opens your world view and really helps you grow as a person.

Testimonial:
I made great new friends on this trip, and loved learning about the Costa Rican culture and how they relate to the natural world. I got to practice my spanish, eat great food, and learn about one of the most biodiverse and beautiful places on Earth.
