Testimonial: Allison Pillar, Macalester College

Allison Pillar

The ACM Costa Rica program was especially memorable for me because it allowed me to conduct an independent research project and gain credit towards my major, but it also provided me with a full Spanish language immersion experience. I went into the program with the expectations of learning more about tropical plant ecology, but I came out with much more – a stronger sense of global citizenship and a better understanding of my place as a scientist in a different cultural context.
