TEP facilitated an outstanding short term immersion experience for students in my cultural analysis course. Their professionalism and attention to detail are superb and I cannot imagine delivering such high quality experiences without them. TEP earns the highest marks for coordinating high impact learning experiences by providing insights into and analysis of Belizean culture.

Trip of a lifetime
Submitted by WK - Loras College | January 23, 2018
TEP changed my life and gave me an outlet to better myself and grow in so many different ways. The memories, friendships, adventures, and endured struggles will stick with me forever. I would not change this journey for anything in the world and I recommend it for anyone who is looking for a great study abroad experience!

The Belize J-term experience was definitely an experience that I can never forget. It was the experience of a lifetime and there is not one moment that I regret. I am grateful that I received this opportunity to be immersed in another culture, make connections, create friendships internationally, and experience so many new adventures. Belize is simply unBELIZEable, and "once you come once, you will always come back!"

Belize study abroad
Submitted by LC - Loras College | January 18, 2018
This trip was amazing! Everyone should be able to study abroad, I learned so much about the Belizean culture as well as my own! I also feel like I discovered a little more about myself with the challenges and successes throughout the trip. The activities were so fun and we had the opportunity to do so much. Our host Moms’ were great and took very good care of us. The one thing I would say could be better would be program administration communication with us (students) during our time in Belize. For time, costs, etc.

Thank you for sharing your honest and thoughtful feedback. We are most grateful for the opportunity to collaborate with your faculty and administrators.
Would love if you can further explain your concerns raised around communication, time, and costs. We strive for perfection knowing that somethings are outside of our control but with your help, we can work to address this issue for future students.
Again, thank you, and may you continue to grow from this experience long after you return home.

Study abroad occupational/ physical therapy in Belize
Submitted by Elissa Pothast - University of Indianapolis | October 02, 2017
I had such a wonderful experience in Belize last summer. I learned so much about OT and being creative with limited resources, but I also learned so much about the culture of Belize and experienced so many fun opportunities/activities. It was my first experience traveling out of the United States and I don't think I could have chosen a better place to go, and the TEP staff was amazing! I loved my experience so much that I plan to return to Belize in the future, whether it be for service learning or just vacation!
