Alexia Romero Studying abroad in Costa Rica through ACM was one of the best decisions I have made for myself academically, as well as personally. The program was beneficial academically because it gave me the opportunity to improve my Spanish substantially, while at the same time having an incredible time becoming immersed in the Costa Rican culture. Personally, the program was beneficial because it gave me so much self-confidence to know I was capable of going to a foreign country by myself and thriving. I will never forgot the friends I made and the experiences I had while abroad in Costa Rica.

—Alexia Romero, Costa Rica, Fall 2008, JD Candidate at Stanford Law School
