What one word best describes my experience in the Odum School of Ecology?

The Maymesters! Specifically, the Field Program in Ecological Problem Solving that took us all over the state of Georgia and the Tropical Ecology program that took us all over Costa Rica. I love travel and I love learning in different environments with people who share my interests in ecology.
