Sarah Laven My study abroad experience through the ACM Costa Rica fall program was an unforgettable experience that defined my college career. I grew as a Spanish speaker and critical thinker through a variety of unique and intimate classes with highly knowledgeable and caring professors. The interdisciplinary nature of the program created a holistic learning experience that not only honed my Spanish language skills, but made me think critically about the culture and environment of my new home. Thanks to my incredible host family and the ACM staff I found a second home in Costa Rica that was filled with adventure and learning that has enriched my life for the better.
