On October 25, EARTH alumni from Costa Rica reunited for a Field Day at the University. The goal of the activity was to build relationships between the graduates and their alma mater. Around 150 people attended the event, including staff, faculty and family of the graduates.
The morning began at the gymnasium and was full of family-friendly activities, such as bicycle tours, sack races, dances, soccer, presentations from second-year entrepreneurial projects and face painting for the children.
Alumna Melania Arroyo (’12, Costa Rica) says “One of the activities that I most enjoyed was getting to play soccer with the graduates and children present at the activity, in addition to catching up with the professors and friends that work at EARTH University, my second home.”
These activities strengthen the relationship between the graduates and the Institution, despite the years have passed since they obtained their degree as agronomists. This constant contact with alumni is one of the things that makes EARTH unique. Melania says that the activity “means a lot” to her and that it helped her to “remember the life I lived for four years of study, work, fun, sports, friends and more.”
