Costa Rica Study Tour Informational Meetings April 25


Deanna Byrnes

April 22, 2014

Waiting to hear about the Costa Rica J-15 study tour? We have two informational sessions for students interested in the J-Term 2015 Tropical Ecology of Costa Rica study tour.

This trip will focus on the ecology and sustainable development of Costa Rica’s natural resources. We will spend a few days on campus and 11 days traveling in Costa Rica. This course fulfills the SCI-LAB requirement, but not Global Heritage. If you wish to use this course as an upper-level Biology elective, BIO 2200 is a prerequisite. A general description of this study tour can be found on the 2015 Study Tour web-page.

The informational sessions will be held on Friday, April 25, at 10:30 a.m. and 4:15 p.m. in Straz 228. In these sessions, we will cover more information about our itinerary, class activities, expectations, and preparation. Contact Dr. Byrnes ( or Dr. Tobiason ( if you have questions and cannot make it to either session.
