“I gained more veterinary experience in three weeks than I ever thought possible. The techniques I learned and the confidence I gained will definitely be useful to me in the future. I didn’t expect to become so close with people on the trip, but I’ve definitely gained some lifelong friends. I loved being immersed in Costa Rican culture and using my Spanish.” Cassandra, college alumna
