Program Reviews:
Summer - Two Months 2016 Participant
My favorite part of the program was meeting and hanging out with international students and ticos. The people I met were amazing, especially my host family. The professors and other students in the program were great and made the experience truly excellent.

Ananda Benedetta Bhatia, Summer - Two Months 2016 Participant
The other students in my classes were from all over the world, and the Costa Ricans I met were incredible. The people I met were easily my favorite part of the experience.

Summer - Two Months 2012 Participant
The intensive language summer program was well taught and I felt that it allowed me to achieve all my language goals. The program also offers a high level of independence for students. For me this meant that I was able to learn how to manage a lot of new cultural and practical situations on my own, which was very rewarding.
