Summer study abroad

Going to Costa Rica for this summer study abroad was not just an amazing experience, but was a life changing experience. The experience that I had there was on of the most rewarding trips I have ever taken. EARTH helped in the experience being so great.
At EARTH, I feel they provided the best for us. The classes that we were able to take were amazing and the teachers were so knowledgeable about the topics that they were teaching. Along with learning in the classroom, we were able to go outside the classroom and get the hands on experience that allowed you to connect more with what you learned and with the people of Costa Rica. EARTH has a lot to of offer when you stay on the campus, they have so many different sports and activities. The other part that made this trip great were the people that I was able to meet when I was there. The teachers connected with us on a personal level, the students loved getting to know us and learn things from us, and the RA that was assigned to our group and the stuff in the study abroad office made the trip much more enjoyable. With all of these people it make the trip fly by and made all of us feel like we were at home instead of us feeling out of place. At one point on the trip, my friend and I were talking about how we're just wanted to go home and by "home" we meant EARTH campus.
I would highly recommend traveling abroad to Costa Rica and participating in a program that EARTH has to offer. It has provided me with a different look at the world and has allowed me to make some great connects and some new friends.
EARTH summer study abroad program
Submitted by Logan Leavitt - MSU | August 02, 2016
The summer program at EARTH University exceeded my expectations for academic and cultural immersion. The curriculum was rightly focused on the field of sustainable development and ecological conservation and challenged students to think from solution-based perspectives at the levels of both international policy formation and local grassroots action. The diversity among the University's faculty and student body promoted an open-minded learning environment and I personally experienced positive changes in my perceptions of environmental issues and my general worldview. I appreciate the genuine enthusiasm held by the dedicated staff at EARTH University and would definitely recommend the program to anyone interested!

EARTH University is an amazing institution that brings students from vastly different countries, climates and cultures. They provide an all inclusive education of agriculture, the environment, and what it really means to be sustainable. A literal hot (humid) bed of learning, EARTH University is a shining example for the rest of academia.
