Why do a J Term?
It’s JANUARY – It’s after the holidays, you’ve had enough of your family for the year. Time to ship out!
Oh the weather outside is…Okay, maybe you are from somewhere in the country that has nice weather, but we’re not. So pretty much everywhere else is going to be milder than the Northeast in January. And Costa Rica? Well it’s a comfortable 84 degrees there right now. Classes during the week in San Jose and excursions to the beaches on the weekends.
Wouldn’t you rather be doing this next winter? ↑
Time/Money – If you can’t go abroad during the semester or the summer, this is a great opportunity. It’s cheaper, and it’s just enough time to soak up the culture and explore a new place. You can learn about Shakespeare in London, the history and architecture of Paris, Spanish culture in Granada, Italian fashion in Florence and more.
