Students who traveled to Costa Rica and Panama this summer could choose from several classes taught by Union professors:

  • Travel Photography – Taught by Bruce Forbes
  • Travel Literature – Taught by Lori Peckham
  • Humanity and Our Environment – Taught by Dr. Christina Burden-Page
  • Medical Ecology and Epidemiology – Taught by Dr. Christina Burden-Page

In between classwork, the students and faculty had plenty of time to enjoy their tropical surroundings. “You are in Costa Rica, you’re on the beach, and you’re getting three upper-division science credits. What could be better?” asked Nicole Hardt, a junior biomedical science major. “There were so many possibilities for fun, adventure and exploration. Every day we met new people, tried new foods, and went on new excursions. There was not one boring moment.”
