And chemical engineering junior Leah Kaplan took full advantage of the opportunity, spending time in Antigua, Guatemala. 

Kaplan explained that not only did this program allow her to work more with her major, but she also became exposed to the rich and complicated history of Guatemala. “I volunteered on an organic farm and helped teach English at a local school.”
