Study Abroad seminar in Costa Rica
Pura Vida, the literal translation of live a good life, is exactly what 10 JMC majors learned about in the January 2014 Study Abroad seminar in Costa Rica.
Warm summer breezes and exotic tropical foliage provided the backdrop as students gained real-world experience working for the instituto costaricense de turismo, (Costa Rica Department of Tourism). In partnership with five University of Costa Rica students, the student teams developed and presented tourism promotional plans for three Costa Rican family-owned tourism businesses.
The students produced this video to show what they did.
