It was a great opportunity to get to learn about another culture while actually living within it. - Washington & Jefferson College 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 learned a new language, that I have a love for travel and need to travel as often as I can. - Webster University View Entire Review
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.

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

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

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. Overall, It will change your life. You’ll come back a new person! - CUNY - Queens 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.
