Ilana Mishkin Joining the orchestra at the University of Costa Rica during my time on the ACM Costa Rica program was really what sealed my experience as unforgettable. Not only did ACM support me and my schedule in every way, but the preparation they gave me in terms of confidence, Spanish skills, and cultural familiarity was amazing. ACM does a fantastic job of catering to every student's interests while maintaining a strong, family-like community of faculty and students.
