"Costa Rica study abroad was an experience of a lifetime. Study abroad in Costa Rica was undoubtedly my most personally satisfying and most impacting experience here at Truman. I was completely immersed in the beautiful "tica" culture which I feel like is now part of my culture. I feel a deep connection with the country and culture of Costa Rica. I gained a family that I know will be there to welcome me whenever I return to Costa Rica."
