I went to Forfar in 2000 with my marine biology class. It's been a long time, but I still consider the experience one of the best in my life. I still look at pictures and miss the field station and the island. The field station was peaceful and beautiful. I can only hope I'll be able to return one day.

I stayed in at the Forfar Station when I was 14 or 15, for a marine study with my school Clark. It was really awesome, everyone was kind and it's a beautiful view.

Forfar is heaven on Earth. I have been there twice once in high school and again in college. It was better the second time. I have never been to a place like it, I will definantly go back every opportunity I have.

I went to Forfar in 1995 with West Carrollton High fo a marine biology study trip. It was the most incredible experience of my life. I still cherish the memories of my time there. It has made a lasting impact on my life. -Tracy

I was on a college study trip to Forfar. It was a trip that more than met my expectations. I think my life will be forever enhanced by my experiences at Forfar. I highly recommend it and I wish to take my son with me next time for a graduation gift.

This is a fantastic place -- it's a beautiful and peaceful setting. All of the staff are great. There is a lot to see and do here, but it is still very relaxing. I want to go back.
