“Of all the exciting and challenging semesters I have had here at JBU, my BestSemester study abroad in Costa Rica was an exceptional time.

The Latin American Studies Program (LASP) added a truly experiential learning component to my time at JBU. I lived with three families over the course of my semester in Costa Rica and Nicaragua, and I took courses on and studied the language, social culture, political institutions, and Latin American religion. In total immersion, I embraced firsthand everything from new social habits to deep-seated perspectives on the world.

 The professors in charge of the semester are passionate about the learning content and care deeply about each and every student that attends LASP. I'm very grateful for how they shaped this program and the lasting impact my time in Costa Rica has had on me.” -Reagan Doerstling, class of 2018.
