ICDS was the experience of a lifetime!

I spent a semester abroad with ICDS in Fall of 2014, and it was GREAT!
I loved the host family that I lived with; since completing the program, I've returned to visit them twice.
The classes were small, the professors were excellent, and the program administrators were incredibly helpful. I'd recommend this program to anyone!

Costa Rica study abroad

The Spanish and Health in Latin America program with ICDS is an amazing opportunity for anyone who wants to improve their Spanish skills while also learning about global health. I had a great time with the friends I made and my host family was the best.
