In fact, I often find myself daydreaming (not in class of course) about all of the amazing sites and activities I was able to see and do there. Not to mention, it was an incredible financial deal-practically a steal! As someone who is interested in both biology (especially marine) and geology, this class was the perfect combination for me. I decided to take this course as a way to solidify my interest in these two subjects as a possible career path. I live in a state with no coast and don't often get to enjoy such marine environments. This was actually my first time seeing a coral reef! The hands-on/in the field approach definitely peaked[sic.] my interests even more so. Now, I have the reassurance I was seeking. Highlights: swimming in bioluminescence, seeing manatees, climbing a Mayan temple, making new friends...everything! It was an international experience in which I learned numerous interesting facts, experienced a different culture, conducted my own research project, bonded with fellow W&L students (whom I didn't know beforehand), and went on adventures every day! All of this said, for those interested in studying abroad...go!"
