American University of the Caribbean


This morning Zack got a phone call offering him a spot at The American University of the Caribbean!  We are so happy/excited/anxious/relieved and just plain thrilled to have this news!  Most of you reading this probably have never heard of this medical school and I'll tell you why- it's in St. Maartin. 
The main building on campus.  Gorgeous right?!
Located at Cupecoy in St. Maartin is the beautiful campus of AUC .  A student at AUC spends 2 years on the island completing coursework and the final 2 years of medical school are spent at one of AUCs sister school in the United States or even in England.  Who wouldn't want to go to school in paradise?!  In case I haven't convinced you enough yet how does this all sound-
-Half the island is owned by the Netherlands, the other half by the French.  We'll be so cultured!
-The Visa's we'll have most likely will make us leave the island every 90 days so we will have to travel to places like Anguilla, St. Kitts, etc.  
-Beach front property
-Some of our good friends from BYU are headed there too!
-The typical weather is 80 degrees and NOT humid.  Can we say YES!
-The pristine beaches, plentiful water sports and duty-free shopping...you are all welcome to visit us anytime!!!
