Carlitos Oviedo achieves milestone anniversary

Heredia Resident Director celebrates 25 years with USAC

Dozens of people wished Resident Director Carlos “Carlitos” Oviedo congratulations on achieving his 25th anniversary working for University Studies Abroad Consortium (USAC) in a 10-part video message on the USAC Heredia Instagram page. He has been an integral part of the USAC Heredia program since 1999, helping students navigate Costa Rica with humor and fun through field trips, tours, volunteer opportunities and much more.

Current and former students thanked him for introducing them to the nation of Costa Rica and opening their eyes to the possibilities that exist for them out in the world.

The messages from executive leadership, faculty, and staff at the Universidad Nacional de Costa Rica (UNA) show Carlos has put decades of effort into building meaningful relationships throughout the institution. His commitment and dedication to the supporting international students opens pathways for both the students and the school.

Carlos responded to the warm wishes himself in a separate video, which can be watched on Instagram.
