I learned a lot about international relations and economic difficulty in other countries. It was such a valuable experience. - Transylvania University
A student studying abroad with University of Indianapolis: Athens - Odyssey in Athens
I learned a lot more about myself in that one semester than I did in the three and a half years in my home school because of the unique space in which I learned, experienced, and spent exploring another culture. Overall, It will change your life. You’ll come back a new person! - Queens College
It was definitely worthwhile. Although I only spent a short amount of time here, I had a really enjoyable experience.
It was amazing the food, culture, history, and traditions are truly awesome and I would have never even known unless I came. - University of Indianapolis
I gained a lot of things form this experience. I learned how to be independent and how to live in a big and sometimes overwhelming city - University of Massachusetts Amherst
02/04/2013 Incredible!
I think I became a better person, learning to be more responsible and mature, and gaining a new found awareness of other cultures. It was definitely worthwhile. - SUNY - Buffalo
Gained a best friend. Learned about myself, learned to be more communicative and social, learned about other countries and religions, learned to be more confident in myself. Gained 3 months i will never forget. It was completely worthwhile. - Marist College
This trip was amazing, no lie. I gained so much knowledge about the world and life in general. The program opened my eyes to the whole other side of the world. It's amazing what three months in another country can do for a person. - University of Indianapolis
It was truly a once in a lifetime experience in which I was completely immersed in another culture. It was worthwhile because as a graduate student, I probably will not get the opportunity to travel abroad again! - University of Indianapolis

cultural exposure yes!!! - SUNY - College at Geneseo
07/06/2012 Amazing Trip!
international perspective; absolutely - University of Indianapolis
I feel like I learned how to relax a little more because the people in Greece are so laid back. I also learned how to be even more independent because I came to Greece by myself, and spent the first couple of days by myself, and spent the last week by myself. - Capital University
It was absolutely worthwhile. I would highly suggest study abroad in general, and specifically Odyssey in Athens. - SUNY - Buffalo
I never realized how much this experience would change my life. I learned so much about myself and I am a completely different person than I was 6 months ago. Living abroad can be difficult, but I definitely became more independent. I also found a passion for traveling and hope I get to travel more in my lifetime. - University of Indianapolis
I learned how to make new friends and I learned about the type of person I am. - SUNY - College at Geneseo
I learned that sometimes you never know how you are going to react to situation until you are put right in the middle of it. Only, then will you truly know. - Saint Louis University
I learned how to be more independent, and I learned more about myself. It was the greatest opportunity, and I would do it all over again if I could. - Adelphi University
Great experience! I gained a lot of responsibility. Definitely recommend whoever have the opportunity to take it and go abroad! - Kean University
I learned to immerse myself in new culture. Despite the negative views of Greece I never felt like I was not safe. I made new life long friends both local and Americans. And my greatest memories are with them. I needed something my home campus could not offer and my abroad experience is the high light of my college experience. - SUNY - College at Geneseo
A student studying abroad with University of Indianapolis: Athens - Odyssey in Athens
I saw all the sites and learned all the history exactly like I wanted but I also found something I didn't know I was looking for, lifelong friends. The UINDY Athens campus is a school for international students, many students are the children of diplomats, and there are few who were born in Greece. When I was there the Odyssey p... - Syracuse University

I learned a lot about myself, and I learned a lot about traveling internationally - SUNY - College at Geneseo
Studying abroad in Greece taught me so much and is definitely an experience that I will not forget. Through our daily experiences in Athens, Greece I learned so much about Greek culture. Our weekend excursions to Ancient Greek ruins and the island of Santorini allowed me to take in the rich history of Greece and learn more about... - University of Indianapolis
This was a life-changing experience, it allowed me a chance to broaden my horizons and presented so many opportunities that I never imagined I would have - SUNY - Binghamton
