JU 103 The Freshman Experience Abroad in Costa Rica:
Expand Your Expectations - Explore New Shores
This international program is a prelude to the JU 102 experience on campus. It aims to foster a strong network of peers early-on in order to best support the transition to university life and promote a successful academic career at JU.
Every fall incoming freshmen are enrolled in a one-credit course called JU 102. This course is designed to be an experiential learning voyage.
Academic Affairs and Study Abroad have collaborated to offer a select number of freshmen the opportunity to travel to Costa Rica for one week, prior to JU orientation, as part of their JU 102 course. *from Study Abroad web pages
