Generally every May, Keystone students have the opportunity to travel abroad on a nine-day field course to study the geology and ecology of Costa Rica. Students who take this faculty-led trip visit active volcanoes, explore boiling mud pools, and take a boat trip around the Santa Elena Peninsula to explore unique rock formation that are found in only a few places on Earth. Get more details about the trip.
