A student studying abroad with CIEE: Monteverde - Summer Tropical Ecology and Conservation
I gained a lot of confidence in my own abilities and I learned a lot about myself and how far I can push my limits. I learned so much just by being in a different environment, immersed in a different culture and exploring various ecosystems. It was one of the best decisions I've made. - Brandeis University View Entire Review
A student studying abroad with CIEE: Monteverde - Summer Tropical Ecology and Conservation
I learned plenty of conservation issues, I am more conscious about my surroundings. I am grateful for hot water and AC. Very worthwhile. - The University of Texas at Austin View Entire Review
I developed a deeper love of ecology/science/nature, improved my Spanish, learned what it was like to live in a developing country, and made some great friends. More than anything else, it has made me consider going into an environmental field. - Brandeis University View Entire Review
Past Review
I learned so much about tropical ecology and conservation. I enjoyed living in a Latin American country and discovered that I wouldn't mind living in a place like that for an extended period of time. - Tufts University View Entire Review
A student studying abroad with CIEE: Monteverde - Summer Tropical Ecology and Conservation
I learned to be open, to go travel, love unconditionally, and learned that money doesn't make you happy in the end. This was the best decision I have ever made. - The University of Texas at Austin View Entire Review
A student studying abroad with CIEE: Monteverde - Summer Tropical Ecology and Conservation
Yes. It has completely opened my mind to others around the globe. I use the information I learned about the world around us everyday, making positive changes within my own life and the lives of the people around me. - University of Colorado - Boulder View Entire Review
My study abroad program helped me realize what I care about and what kind of person I want to be. I met incredible people and had incredible experiences. I would not be where I am right now if I did not do this program. - Tufts University View Entire Review
