Costa Rica is Calling YOU!

WHY would you want to complete your SPRING 2018 semester in COSTA RICA?  Let me count just a few of the reasons!

  • You’ll put your resume at the top of the heap when applying for jobs!  Prospective employers expect that your experience abroad will make you a more valuable employee.  Graduate schools also value study-abroad experiences.
  • You’ll learn a new language (if you haven’t already) or hone your Spanish-speaking skills (if you already have them)!  Many job and life situations benefit from your knowing another language, so let yourself reap those benefits.
  • You’ll make great friend connections that often last a lifetime! These friends include other students who travel with you to Costa Rica, the families you live with while in Costa Rica, and people you meet during your travels across Costa Rica.
  • You’ll study in a very safe country on a very beautiful campus during Costa Rica‘s very wonderful dry season!  Visit www.iclc.ws/to see where you’ll be.
  • You’ll add to your Minnesota State goal areas!  This means these credits transfer to other state colleges and universities.
  • You’ll see the world differently!  When you see the world from a different perspective, you not only gain a deeper understanding of others, but you gain a deeper understanding of yourself.
