Review Your Program

* Overall educational experience

Academic rigor, intensity, resources, etc.

The workload was not bad at all. The professors understood that we did not want to be in our rooms working on homework, but that we wanted to be exploring Greece. There was some work that had to be done, but it was definitely manageable. A lot of our class time was spent out at archaeological sites and museums. Because we did not have a host university, there was no real difference between American classes. We simply met in odd places (i.e. the roof of our hotel in Athens).

* Housing:

How satisfied were you with your living arrangements?

* Food:

* Social & Cultural Integration:

How integrated did you feel with the local culture?

* Health Care:

How well were health issues addressed during the program?

* Safety:

There was some worry of safety, because the Greeks were protesting current changes within the government. Luckily we were able to avoid a lot of the danger.

If you could do it all over again would you choose the same program? Yes


* Money: How easily were you able to live on a student's budget?

(1 = not very easy/$200+ on food & personal expenses/week, 2.5 = $100/week, 5 = very easily/minimal cost)
