Being able to be experience not only Oteima University, but their values, was an incredible experience that I will never forget. The time, effort, and dedication that has been put into building a University like their’s is truly inspiring. They are never settling and always looking to further improve themselves. All though the time that I spent there was not near long enough for what I would have liked it to be, I truly did learn a lot of information that I know will only help me excel in my professional and personal life.

Oteima University is one that is striving to advance the use of conservational strategies. Professors at the university care a great deal for the environment and practice their conservational methods while sharing their knowledge of the land and the animals that inhabit it with the students. Having had the opportunity to observe Oteima’s plan for conservation, I am excited to share with members of my community what they’ve done and how we can do the same here in the Midwest.

Oteima University is an inspirational institution. Being able to hear first hand about what they are aiming to achieve for Panama’s natural resources has really sparked my interest to improve our conservational methods in the United States. After experiencing Oteima, my goal is to further implement conservation into my career and encourage others to do the same.
I had an amazing experience with Oteima University and the Batipa Field Institute. The things I learned while spending time at these two places will influence me for the rest of my life. The concepts that they are teaching and implementing have given me a new perspective on conservation and a better understanding of what it means to use the land sustainably. I know that the things I learned will benefit me in my future career as an agronomist.
My experience in Panama with Oteima University and the Batipa Field Institute was something I’ll never forget! The leadership of the staff was truly exceptional. Because of these experiences, I’ve developed a great respect for conservation, international agriculture, and wildlife management. I wish more people would visit this one-of-a-kind facility.
Oteima University is a one of a kind institution. My experience there was more than I could have imagined. Their values and passion for sustainable development is incomparable and truly inspiring. I am excited to begin implementing the practices I learned at Oteima in my professional career and I am confident they will make me a successful agronomist and conservationist.

Oteima University is a wonderful university that puts students’ education first. My time with Oteima was life changing and I will never have another experience as beneficial as this was. I can use what I learned from Oteima in the future to better manage my agricultural operation.
Nick Schroeder, Iowa State University
Oteima University is beyond what I imagined. What I experienced there is something I look forward to sharing with others. For them to have the same values that I have as a conservationist is amazing, they also taught me different values which I look forward to using on the farm at home. They truly are a one of a kind institution that is passionate about sustainable development, and I believe they are creating a great image for anyone to follow.

If you’re interested in conservation and sustainable management of natural resource, this place will be perfect for you. Partnering with Oteima University, this Batipa Field institute will give you a great natural laboratory to build conservation and sustainable awareness and you will be able to work in international efforts in research and education. It is a one of a kind experience, and the research done here is very rewarding.
Oteima University gave me the opportunity to look at sustainable conservation efforts in a different country and climate than I am traditionally acclimated with. The experience I left with is irreplaceable and the knowledge I’ve gained about the importance of sustaining our ecosystem will allow me to further my personal and professional growth by reminding me to see the big picture when it comes to agriculture and our natural resources. Thank you!
