Studying abroad in Costa Rica was unlike any experience I've had before. I got to meet new people who are now my very close friends, live in a different culture, and learn about biology in the greatest setting possible. I was outside for a lot of my classes, going on hikes or traveling around the country. I very highly recommend studying abroad to anyone who can do it. The world has so much to offer, and it would be a shame to never experience anything outside of our own bubble. —Vanessa Beane
