Testimonial: Jessica Meyer, Colorado College

Jessica Meyer

My experience abroad through the ACM Costa Rica field research program was phenomenal. The hands-on experience I gained was essential in helping making decisions about my academic focuses at home. I had been unsure if I wanted to pursue Public Health as a major in college. However, after spending a semester doing hands-on research about child obesity, my interests were confirmed. The cultural immersion and language practice from classes, two host families, and two months on my own in the field were also fantastic. Even though I have returned home, I am continuing to work with my advisor in Costa Rica in hopes of compiling my and other students' data into an article ready for publication. I don't know where else you can get an experience like that!
