Privado: Ecological Engineering in Cuzco

Student Experiences


«The lectures, the students, and the interaction with the local community really made the entire experience worthwhile» 

Andrew DeLeon- University of California Riverside 

 «It was one of the most fantastic adventures I have ever gone on in my life! I feel like I have made some life-long friends and a field that I’d like to work in»

Elizabeth Goebbert – Indiana University

 «I am extremely happy I went I came back feeling a completely different person. I valued my life after living away for more than a month»

Yaneli Damian – Napa Valley College

«I loved interacting with students from all over the world. I had never done field work before, and I feel like the field school program did a good job of teaching me»

Melissa Barrett – Ohio State University

«The field school program was amazing! Getting to work out in the field and gain experience in an interactive way was a great way to learn. Getting to meet so many students with similar interests but such varying backgrounds was wonderful and everyone was a lot of fun. As for the academic, it was great. The classwork never really seemed like classwork and I really enjoyed learning from such experienced professors»

Sara Letsch

Zocha Houle-Wierzbicki

«The Field School Program was good and very educational»

Catie King

«I really enjoyed the Field School Program. I particularly enjoyed the small class size because I was able to get to know my peers very well and get more one-on-one attention from the professors. I also feel that I learned a lot through experience not only about the fiestas but also about fieldwork in general, and it has given me a better sense of where I’d like to go with anthropology in the future»

Sara Endy

«I had a great time and would recommend the program to anyone who is interested. The field work was great practice and I will be able to apply it in my Anthropological career. I think the ability to interact with other American students is key. It helped me to quickly overcome culture shock and gave me confidence. I also enjoyed the classes I took at PCUP. It was excellent to be able to get background information before we did the field work»
