Carlina Arango Allowing myself to study abroad for a semester in Costa Rica through ACM has been one of the most rewarding experiences in my life thus far. I was able to create life-long friendships with my host family and fellow peers along with exploring and getting to know Costa Rica's great natural beauty and rich history. I came out of the program knowing all of the great benefits and wonders you can gain from immersing yourself into a different culture for just a few months. I definitely plan to go back and visit!"
