It was truly one of the best experiences of my life. I’m positive the Sepela field courses will go above and beyond anyone’s expectations.” – Elizabeth H., 2011 

“Best experience of my life. Not only did I learn a lot but I had the privilege of witnessing some of Africa’s wildlife. It was truly amazing and I hope one day I will have the chance to go back.”Melissa B.,  2011 

“Terri is one of the most inspiring photographers that I know. She has a sense of humor, mak-3is patient and has a passion that comes out in every lecture and it is captivating. Her South Africa work is remarkable and it was a privilege to be her student. Her knowledge of photography is extensive and I feel like I learned 3 semesters in one. Everyone should experience a teacher who loves what they do to the point that it becomes contagious and makes you want to learn more.” – Maureen P., 2013

“The primatology field course taught me a multitude of scientific research methods, many of which I still use today. Some research methods can only truly be learned in the field, and the instructors provide hands on experience with widely used research tools and techniques.” – Claire D., 2009

“Having Terri Cappucci as one of my Instructors was one of the most eye opening experiences. Learning all aspects of photojournalism from someone that lived and breathed the industry for years gave me realistic expectations as a photojournalist. The one on one attention during class and after on projects and career advice was one of the best things I remember learning from Terri.” – Joey F.

“Attending the Primates of South Africa Field Course in the summer of 2011 was the highlight of my undergraduate career. The field technique training I received has carried me through to my graduate career and has become an impressive standout on my curriculum vitae – making it the most valuable learning experience of my educational career so far.” – Elizabeth H., 2011
