Join us in May 2012 for a study abroad adventure of a lifetime.costa-rica-337web

THE COSTA RICA STUDY ABROAD is currently accepting applications for summer 2012. 

This Costa Rica study abroad program will be offered in May/June 2012, proposed class dates are May 14th – June 8th.  Cost is estimated at @ $2,500.  

Students enrolled in this study abroad program will receive credit for both BIOL 1407 Biology II and KINE 1172 Backcountry Expeditioning.  The only pre-req for the course is BIOL 1406 Biology I.  We will be in the country an estimated 11 days, with five days spent at a biological research station on the Osa Peninsula called Campanario (  The next five days we will be at the University of Georgia – Costa Rica campus (  The final day of our trip will be a visit to the Arenal Volcano to view the active volcano and relax before returning home. Because I believe a picture is worth a thousand words, I would encourage you to peruse the two websites with all the pretty pictures.  Students will experience two very different tropical environments, the lowland jungles along the Osa Peninsula and the cloud forests high in the mountains of Monteverde.   

If you have any other questions please don’t hesitate to ask.  We are very excited about taking Lone Star students to the rain forest for the second year in a row.  For more information about the course, please feel free to contact me at or Ronnie Nespeca at
