I learned a lot more about myself in that one semester than I did in the three and a half years in my home school because of the unique space in which I learned, experienced, and spent exploring another culture.

Great experience! I gained a lot of responsibility. Definitely recommend whoever have the opportunity to take it and go abroad! - Kean University View Entire Review
I learned to immerse myself in new culture. Despite the negative views of Greece I never felt like I was not safe. I made new life long friends both local and Americans. And my greatest memories are with them. I needed something my home campus could not offer and my abroad experience is the high light of my college experience. - SUNY - College at Geneseo View Entire Review
A student studying abroad with University of Indianapolis: Athens - Odyssey in Athens
I saw all the sites and learned all the history exactly like I wanted but I also found something I didn't know I was looking for, lifelong friends. The UINDY Athens campus is a school for international students, many students are the children of diplomats, and there are few who were born in Greece. When I was there the Odyssey p... - Syracuse University View Entire Review

I was able to experience life in ways I couldn't even begin to imagine. The entire trip was such a notable experience, one that will forever be cherished with the most positive memories I have.

I never realized how much this experience would change my life. I learned so much about myself and I am a completely different person than I was 6 months ago.

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.
