4 Days Until Departure

Hi Everyone! My name is Rachel and I am from Phoenix, Arizona. I am a junior at the University of Denver where I am studying English (education concentration), psychology, and Spanish so I can become a high school teacher. I am leaving in a few short days to study abroad at Universidad Nacional (National University) in Costa Rica where I will be studying Spanish and education.


I recently got back from a 10 day trip to Israel which I feel gave me just a small taste of what studying abroad may be like. The trip was absolutely amazing and got me even more excited to travel the world and experience living life in Costa Rica. Now that I am back in the U.S., I still haven’t fully processed that in a few short days I will be leaving to find my second home in Costa Rica while I learn and explore. As each day passes I get more and more excited and nervous for the adventure, but I know that it will be a once in a lifetime opportunity that I will never forget!
