Athens: A Great Experience! Past Review

By (Communicative Disorders and Sciences, SUNY - College at Geneseo) for

SUNY Geneseo: Athens - Humanities Course

What did you gain/learn from your experience abroad? Was it worthwhile?
It was great to be able to actually live in a different country for a month. Along with being able to see many different places in Greece, I really feel like I gained a much better understanding of the culture itself. The course did require a bit of work, but I thoroughly enjoyed it and would highly recommend taking Humn I with Professor Greenfield.
