Review

I went to the Galapagos Islands in Ecuador during the 2018 JanTerm. We had field trips to various sites including kicker rock where we swam with sharks and sea turtles. The class was excellent because we learned about the history, biodiversity, and issues of the Galapagos islands. My favorite part was housing because my host mom was very welcoming. The meals were amazing and getting to know her family was heartwarming. This program allowed to be open-minded and get to know other cultures without being afraid. I learned to be independent and comfortable while traveling to another country. The most exciting part of this program was snorkeling for the first time in the Galapagos and swimming with sea lions, sea turtles, sharks, and other diversity in the ocean.
If you are planning on participating on this JanTerm go with all your positivity and be open to try new things. Do not be afraid to talk to your host family because your host family is there to help you.

Would you recommend this program?
Yes, I would
