The Importance of Goodbyes – Costa Rica Day 4

Posted · Add Comment

Today was our second day at the school, working with the students and teaching them lessons. We arrived at the school bright and early and ready to work! The students were extremely excited to see us; they ran to us with open arms and warm smiles. We worked on three main lessons with them today. We taught moon phases, how to make small lava-like lamps, and how to plant seeds. This was extremely fitting because it was agriculture day at the school. All the kids dressed up in their traditional dresses and outfits to celebrate the day. All of the classes we worked with today were happy to spend time […]

In the Classroom, Costa Rica 2019

Service Day at the Elementary School – Costa Rica Day 3

Posted · Add Comment

We spent the majority of our third day in Costa Rica at the Jacinto Pantiaqua Elementary School. We learned that the education system in Costa Rica is quite different from that in America. The students attend half days in which one age group attends in the morning and the other age group attends in the afternoon. All students wear uniforms that distinguish what grade they are in. During the first half of the day we worked with the fourth- and fifth-grade classes. We started in the classroom conducting science experiments. The first experiment involved learning about how water and nutrients travel through the veins of plants. We demonstrated this with […]

Iglesia de la Nuestra Señora de las Mercedes in Grecia, Costa Rica

Sightseeing and Cuisine Sampling – Costa Rica Day 2

Posted · Add Comment

Today we went to the Poás Volcano in Costa Rica. The volcano is still active, and it is quite a breathtaking view (when the fog doesn’t hide it away). After visiting the volcano, we made our way back to the town of Grecia, our hometown for the trip, and had delicious refrescos at a small cafe called Cafè Delicias. We explored the town and got a sense of the culture and the “speed” of life. The church, Iglesia de la Nuestra Señora de las Mercedes, is the main attraction in Grecia; and its tall ceilings and the intricate statues and paintings that bring Catholicism to life are a must-see when […]

Introduction to Costa Rican Culture – Costa Rica Day 1

Posted · Add Comment

Day One in Costa Rica was an eye-opening and reassuring day. Meeting the families in Grecia was nerve-racking at first, but the Costa Rican culture and families were both very welcoming. We were all greeted with open arms and warm smiles. Once we walked in the house, they had a light meal prepared for us which consisted of all the local favorites. One of the group favorites was fried tortillas covered in sugar cane syrup. During this first “light” meal, we found it interesting how they stopped everything they were doing to fellowship with one another and just enjoy the atmosphere of togetherness. Their family all came together to just […]

Barton College student Sarah Humphries shares her Study Abroad experience. Atlantis Clinical Fellowship When I came to college, my mom told me to be on the lookout for opportunities to study abroad. She made me aware of the benefits of it, but most of the time I did not think twice about it. I heard about Atlantis Fellowships and began to talk to one of my professors, Dr. Pennington, about it. We looked into the program and decided it would be ethically sound and a great opportunity for me to get clinical experience and travel abroad. I went to Italy, and it was such an invaluable experience. I learned a […]
