My Summer with Beyond Study Abroad
An Adventure in Costa Rica for Student-Athletes
- Spanish Classes
In my Spanish Literature class, I enjoyed personal attention not available in traditional Spanish classes. Discussing the texts one-on-one felt more like a conversation than a lecture. While the class was difficult, my teacher was able to slow down or speed up according to my needs.
In order to receive credit, you need to fill out a petition for the Overseas department and if you want credit for a Spanish major/minor, you need to contact the Spanish department. The deadline to do so is around April 1st.
- Adventure Excursions
On the weekends, we traveled to amazing beaches and went zip lining in the rain forest and over waterfalls around the volcano.
My favorite memory from the excursions was getting body-surfing tips from Barbadian brudda David. The excursions really helped the group bond and offset spending part of your summer in a classroom.
