NEIU Field School Seasons
"This class was both physically and mentally challenging. One of the hardest things I've ever done, but at the same time, the most profound experience of my life...absolutely life-changing. Unbelievable class."
"I had a great time excavating and working like an archaeologist. It is an experience I will never forget..."
"I really enjoyed this field school...I felt like I learned a great deal in a short amount of time, and I learned more this way that I ever could have sitting in a classroom."
"This was an excellent opportunity for me to learn tons of stuff about the Maya and archaeology. I enjoyed the hands-on experience that I gained...it was amazing to learn even on our day off. I liked that I had an opportunity to meet people important in the field."
"Besides insight into the Maya, I learned a great deal about myself, as well as other people."
"This was such a great experience. I feel like I learned a lot and would absolutely return next year, if given the choice."
"[I saw] seven spider monkeys. Just watching their acrobatic finesse and prehensile tails in action was amazing. One was actually directly above me, peering down. I loved it."
"I truly did not think I would learn half the amount that I did. This class was amazing."
"This class was the best educational experience I have ever participated in. I feel very fortunate to have had this opportunity."
"Fantastic experience, life-long memories, wonderful friends. Thank you."
