Review: I did the Gap Year Program at the Cape Eleuthera Institute in the Bahamas. I got to take classes in Marine Ecology, Human Ecology, and Environmental Issues. Along with lots of exploring and adventuring, I also got to intern for 3 weeks with the Flats Ecology and Plastics Research Teams. Being able to contribute to research projects and work with published scientists was such an amazing experience.
