Part 3: Hello from Costa Rica!

This spring, Professor Dorothy Anthony and Shirley Michaels from Keystone College have taken 12 students to San José, Costa Rica, as part of a faculty-led study abroad program customized in partnership with CEA. This program is focused on Global Health and includes site visits to four local healthcare facilities representing different clinic models, high profile guest speakers with the Costa Rican government and healthcare field, and volunteer opportunities at a low-income, rural clinic. The group is also looking forward to excursions to Manuel Antonio National Park, Arenal Volcano and Puerto Viejo.

Here’s what Dorothy and Shirley have to say about their experiences so far:

Hello from Costa Rica! The real first day was fabulous. We had an orientation and then took a city bus to downtown San Jose. That was a hoot in itself. We had an orientation for the city, which ended with ice cream, and picked up a van/bus to take us to Café Brit. This is a must see and do for everyone. There was a play/movie and we learned all about coffee. We had a fabulous lunch there. Then back to CEA’s office for class.

That night we went off to eat dinner and who should show up but our entire group of students with another student from the Casa they are staying at. What a great night! It is so rewarding to see them all together, bonding and adding people to their group. These students are making friends and having experiences together that will bond them for a lifetime.

Today was a great day!
