A student studying abroad with AHA International: Athens - Humanities
It is truly amazing how much you learn from living overseas. Greece feels as much like home as Washington to me now.

The journey gave me new vigor for life and I am a very ... - Western Washington University View Entire Review
Absolutely! I gained an appreciation for other cultures that I didn't even realize I was missing. Connecting and befriending people from other cultures was extremely rewarding, and I can say that I miss my life in Athens every single day! - University of Oregon View Entire Review

It was more than worthwhile, it will definitely change you! - Lebanon Valley College View Entire Review
