April 23, 2019 My Second Home
Immersing myself in another culture has caused me to appreciate my own. As an American, I never really thought I had a culture. In the States, we're a huge melting pot, and I feel like we focus more on our sub-cultures than what it actually means to be American. I've also learned how to travel and navigate unfamiliar places, ... - Webster University View Entire Review

Studying abroad was DEFINITELY worth while!! Even if your program is not ideal, that is no excuse to not make the most of it.

I learned how to live by myself and how to budget. I also learned how to travel confidently. - Webster University View Entire Review
I learned a lot about the different ways of living in another country. Learning to appreciate each day, and not rush through life so much.

It was extremely worthwhile! I gained the knowledge and anxieties of traveling alone and with new friends. I learned to be patient and to make sacrifices with others. - Webster University 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.
