This experience was more than worthwhile and I would recommend it to absolutely everyone. The people of Greece are so friendly and welcoming. At the beginning of the program, I traveled around to other countries, but always found myself excited to be going back to Athens. Of course, I loved the other countries that I went to, b... - Saint Louis University View Entire Review

I'm Greece everything is so laid back. I learned that there is no reason to be so rushed in everything I do. I learned to relax and have patience and to just enjoy my surroundings.

January 06, 2017 Life Changing
The main thing I learned is to be comfortable with being uncomfortable. It's a learning experience and one shouldn't shy away from it just because it's different. That would be missing out on life. - Goucher College View Entire Review
December 12, 2016 Greece Is My Home!

November 19, 2016 A Great Experience!
Webster Athens was part of my Global MA program through Webster University, so I only spent two months in Athens but it was wonderful. I learned a lot about the culture, the people, and also Webster Athens provided me with plenty of opportunities to explore outside of Athens as well. - Webster University View Entire Review
October 15, 2016 Best Summer Ever
It was totally worth it. I learned to live abroad on my own. I learned new things from locals and became part of their society and I can also speak one more language now thanks to this course. - Webster University View Entire Review
Learned there is much more to the world than the city I grew up in. That you have so much in common with people all over the world and getting to know them will bring such happiness to your life! - SUNY - College at Geneseo View Entire Review
To say the least, this was an absolutely incredible experience. I learned so much these past few months, not only about Greece and its culture but also about myself. I would recommend this program in a heartbeat. - Goucher College View Entire Review

About

Why Greece? You may ask... and Why Athens? Greece is the birthplace of so many modern ideas and Athens is the center of where it all happened. Webster-Athens is in an excellent location for formal study - at the foothills of the Acropolis. Just walking around the streets near the university, you can take in so much of this ancient, yet modern, city.

With its extraordinary artistic, intellectual and cultural heritage, Athens is richly endowed with resources for formal study and experiential learning. The museums at the Acropolis and the ancient Agora, as well as the National Archaeological Museum, the Cycladic Museum, and the Benaki collections are within minutes of the Athens Campus facilities. Cultural events including concerts, recitals, dance and theater, as well as international trade shows, conferences and symposia, public lectures, gallery exhibits, sports events and marathons, are an integral part of life in this bustling, cosmopolitan city at the confluence of Europe, Asia and Africa.
