Student Quotes

From a student in the Turks & Caicos Islands, British West Indies

"Must of the learning here is comprised of field work, thus most of our
afternoons are spent snorkeling or scuba diving in the ocean - it has been
incredible to see reef sharks, stingrays, barracudas, lobsters and turtles
in their natural habitat swimming only a few feet away!"

From a student in San Jose, Costa Rica

". . . I love the discotecas. Everyone dances - guys aren't shy, and they
know how to salsa!"
