Center for Engaged Learning Abroad (CELA Belize) Reviews
Belize has my heart
Submitted by Thenson | January 18, 2017
Studying abroad in Belize was a great experience I'll never forget. I gained so much large animal experience that was unavailable to me in the states. It was refreshing to experience veterinary medicine practices in a foreign country where varying approaches are utilized. The cultural experiences were also very special to me. Belize is a beautiful country with wonderful people and I will return soon!

I had an amazing time on this trip! I made some awesome new friends and it certainly feels like I learned more about wildlife conservation in those two weeks than I have throughout my whole college career.

I fell in love with Belize, the kindness of the city and faculty. Not only do you get hands on experience, but you get life lessons. By helping the animals in the course, the students are also helping out the community. Truly a humbling, indescribable, extraordinary experience!
A strong recommendation to anyone in the biological and veterinary fields

I gained an insurmountable amount of experience from CELA and their fantastic instructors Dr. Julio Mercado and Jane Champion. The course provided me information and the politics of Belize in respect to the environment, conservation and behavioral study techniques and real zoo veterinary medicine practices. I gained not only experience but I also made a special bond with many members of my group, making the trip not only more enjoyable but also left such an impression that when I hear the word 'Belize', I will always smile.
