Overall Experience
I not only learned about history, but I saw it in person. I was in front of the Parthenon and saw the ruins of the Minoans. It was incredible and it's hard to explain everything I gained from it. It was the most worthwhile experience I've had and it's opened my eyes to a new part of the world. This experience has motivated me to... - University of Northern Iowa View Entire Review

I learned a lot about myself. I was always shy and didn't like to get out of my comfort zone, but being in a foreign country forced me out of that zone almost always. - University of Northern Iowa View Entire Review
I gained "street independence;" the ability to find my way in busy areas, communicate a bit with locals, and use the currency (without getting ripped off). I now feel more confident in my every day life knowing I have the ability to do these things. - University of Northern Iowa View Entire Review

Past Review Greece Capstone
I loved the culture and the people. I loved how laid back they are and it taught me to not have to be in such a hurry all the time. - University of Northern Iowa View Entire Review
I learned that we're not the only ones in the world. I learned about a completely different culture than my own. It was truly eye opening. I would do this trip again in a heart beat. - University of Northern Iowa View Entire Review

It was so different to experience a foreign culture... It gives you a greater perspective in knowing how much is really out there that is so different from the United States. I know that anybody that goes on this trip with enjoy it greatly. - University of Northern Iowa View Entire Review
I have gained such a better understanding of cultural differences and people in general. It was awesome to get out of my cultural box and adapt to a different place and lifestyle for three weeks. I feel much more rounded as a person and made 18 new friends, which I'd say made it worthwhile. - University of Northern Iowa View Entire Review
Not only did I learn so much about a new culture, but I learned a lot about myself and my culture as well. It was so cool to look at my culture through a new lens and get to live in another culture for a while. My only regret is that I had to leave. - University of Northern Iowa View Entire Review

Aside from the actual class, I learned a ton about international/European culture, and it was very worthwhile. - University of Northern Iowa View Entire Review
I gained a comfort with being in a completely unfamiliar place. My interest in and understanding of Ancient Greek history and modern Greek issues has increased in many ways and only just begun in other ways. It was worthwhile because this experience has permanently made Greek history and culture a personal part of my life experi... - University of Northern Iowa View Entire Review
