Winter Break 2013 Participant
Make time to study abroad even if it is just on a short program, it is worth it

Winter Break 2017 Participant
The most rewarding part of the program was definitely the food.

Sydney Bryce Shepherd, Winter Break 2016 Participant
It's sort of indescribable. I could sit here and type out a twelve-page single-spaced paper on how incredible the experience was, but nothing will do it justice. You meet incredible people including fellow students, instructors, and program ambassadors. You see awesome things like active volcanoes and indigenous tribes and endangered species in their natural habitats. You have the chance to try all sorts of native and non-native foods and be a part of experiences that are already thrilling, but that much more memorable when they're done in a cloud forest near a flock of macaws or Capuchin monkeys.
