The event is a night of sharing, learning, and discussion hosted by members of Student Housing and the UCI Costa Rica Program. The evening includes a formal program highlighting this year’s successes, interactive booths, and a research fair showcasing the student research projects conducted while in Costa Rica that focuses on sustainability and culture.

The Costa Rica Program is a Student Housing Signature Program that has been supported by many stakeholders over the past 6 years. We are excited to share the experiences, research, and insights of the 2017 Costa Rica Program. Please RSVP online at https://goo.gl/forms/EM2wehkmRJj32Vvd2 to attend the event. This event is open to the campus community and public. In-season and locally sourced Costa Rican inspired heavy hors d’oeuvres will be served during the research fair, and will be served on a first-come, first-served basis.

Food will be provided by UCI Catering, and in celebration of sustainability, all items will be locally-sourced, compostable, and/or recyclable to ensure as little waste as possible is produced at the event.
