UGACR Campus 360° Photos
Isaac Martinez, an award-winning Costa Rican 360° photographer, came up to our campus in San Luis to take a number of amazing spherical images on our 155-acre property, a fantastic opportunity to get a clearer understanding of our campus' built space, but also our trails, gardens, and reforestation nursery.
If an ordinary picture is worth a thousand words, then these 360s must each be worth a million!
