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.

There is nothing like being on a 4 month long vacation! Virtually no responsibilities, minimal worries, just constantly trying new things, meeting new people and living life to its fullest every day.

A student studying abroad with Webster University: Athens - Odyssey in Athens
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 went from being a girl who never even left Pennsylvania to traveling 7 countries in Europe by myself. You gain so much confidence in yourself that you could never appreciate if you did not go outside of... - Washington & Jefferson College View Entire Review

This experience was more than worthwhile and I would recommend it to absolutely everyone. The people of Greece are so friendly and welcoming.

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.
