My favorite part about this program was the people I was able to meet, the staff and everyone at the college were so incredibly welcoming.

My favorite part of the program were the cultural activities and the support provided by the program coordinators in the Grupo de Kansas office, Zaida Ugalde and Isa Alcazar.

I thought my personal growth throughout the program was the most rewarding. We traveled most weekends to different parts of Costa Rica, and I tried and did lots of new things throughout the trip! At the end, I find most rewarding how much I've matured and grown as a result.
