DePauw University's Pre-College Study Abroad Program
Committed to immersion in language learning, solidarity through service, and engaging students as global citizens.
The Bob Hershberger Servicio Program is designed for incoming first-year DePauw students interested in social justice, international curiosity, intellectual challenges, and the Spanish language. You will have the opportunity to immerse yourself in a four-week intensive summer program both on DePauw’s campus and off-campus, in Costa Rica, in late June & July, prior to the beginning of the academic year.
"Hello! My name is Ja’el and I have had the privilege of being a student of Servicio in the 2018 cohort and a leader of the 2021 cohort. When I arrived freshman year, I was not proficient in Spanish. I realized pretty quickly that my ability to construct sentences and express myself was limited once we did the initiation and I had to speak only in Spanish."

The Hubbard Center Off-Campus study program allowed me to travel to Costa Rica as an incoming first-year student as part of the Bob Hershberger Servicio Program. The Steve Trulaske (1979 alumnus) International Scholarship Fund covered 100% of the program expenses which enabled me to have this amazing global experience." - Alex '22
