Student Comments:

"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 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."
