Blog: Casey ’15 Looks Forward to Having Class Held in Rain Forest

January 20th, 2014 by 


NAME Meghan Casey ’15

HOMETOWN North Attleboro, Mass.

AREAS OF STUDY Self-designed global health studies major with premedical and Africana Studies concentrations

WHERE SHE’S STUDYING Costa Rica through Duke University’s Organization for Tropical Studies

WHY SHE CHOSE COSTA RICA “I’ve studied Spanish since I was 6, so I always knew that I wanted to go to a Spanish-speaking country to improve my conversation skills. My academic passion is global health. Therefore, from the moment I heard about this program, titled Tropical Medicine and Public Health, I knew it was the perfect combination of my love of Spanish, health, and adventure!”

WHAT SHE’S MOST LOOKING FORWARD TO “This program is really awesome because we move all around the country to different biological stations — and spend a month in the capital and a week in Nicaragua! I’m so excited to be constantly on the move and experience everything that the different areas have to offer. I also can’t believe that my actual classes will be out in the beautiful rain forest — how lucky am I?!”

WHY SHE’S BLOGGING “This program is a unique combination of biology and culture. I want to be able to share what I’m learning about and to show others what a beautiful place Costa Rica is!”
