together U.S. and international students to organize international and

Secretary and Social Chair. If you are interested in running for an officer
position and are energetic and enthusiastic, please reply and I will send
you more information about the responsibilities of each position. If you

Student Quotes

From a student studying in San Jose, Costa Rica: "I am living with a family
in a canton of San Jose. After a few weeks, I feel like a part of the
family. The daily interaction with Ticos [Costa Ricans] has been my
favorite experience."
