Overall Experience
I feel like I learned how to relax a little more because the people in Greece are so laid back. I also learned how to be even more independent because I came to Greece by myself, and spent the first couple of days by myself, and spent the last week by myself. - Capital University View Entire Review
It was absolutely worthwhile. I would highly suggest study abroad in general, and specifically Odyssey in Athens. - SUNY - Buffalo View Entire Review

Past Review Athens, Greece
Absolutely worthwhile and sometimes found myself sad thinking that my older sibling out of college never got to experience all the amazing things I have by going abroad to Greece. The ancient ruins are so amazing. - SUNY - College at Geneseo View Entire Review
I feel like I gained so much from this study abroad trip. I learned qualities that the Greeks have that Americans do not have. Meeting so many people from so many different countries was the best part of the experience. Also living in a foreign country and it becoming my second home. I know that I can alway go back there and fee... - University of Indianapolis View Entire Review

I learned a new language. I met some great friends. After studying abroad I am looking to either go to Grad School abroad or maybe get a career abroad. - Marist College View Entire Review
I have learned so much from my experiences. It really helped me to be able to empathize with people of all cultures, languages, etc. Everyone has different morals, cultures, languages, and beliefs, and it is important that we do not simply reject someone just because we don't agree with something they say or belief. Life is abou... - Winona State University View Entire Review

I wish I could do it all over again. The program and the people that I've met through it are great. This experience will stay with me for the rest of my life. - CUNY - John Jay College of Criminal Justice View Entire Review
This was a life-changing experience, it allowed me a chance to broaden my horizons and presented so many opportunities that I never imagined I would have - SUNY - Binghamton View Entire Review
After going abroad through Odyssey in Athens, I am grateful that I had the possibility to experience 4 months in Greece. The people made the trip wonderful and I definitely would do it again. I had trouble deciding if I wanted to go abroad but I do not regret my decision one bit. - SUNY - College at Geneseo View Entire Review
I gained tuns from this experience. As a future history teacher, Athens, Greece was a perfect place to go. It was worthwhile, however, there are so many other programs out there that may be just as good if not better and may be tailored more to others. - SUNY - College at Geneseo View Entire Review

Past Review Take Me Back!
The location, the food, the culture; this study abroad program was unreal. It's amazing how much you learn about yourself and others by experiencing something like this. Of course there are cultural differences but you also find that people are more similar than you think. Do it! you'll see. - University of Massachusetts Amherst View Entire Review
Past Review Life Changing
Best choice I made for myself. - SUNY - Binghamton View Entire Review
I do value my experience very much it was completely different from what I expected but I am so glad I went nonetheless I gained a great deal of knowledge about living among people from different places in the world and how growing up in another country completely changes your outlook on life. I realized that as much as I love t... - Marist College View Entire Review
Going to Athens changed my life completly. I never thought about living anywhere else besides the United States or even traveling a whole lot, but now I can't wait to get back to Europe. You never think that other countries are real places, but there is so much to see and experience, and so many people never even leave the Weste... - SUNY - College at Fredonia View Entire Review

Traveling in any foreign country for an extended period of time makes you a more responsible and courageous person. - SUNY - College at Geneseo View Entire Review
It was worth EVERYTHING! :) - University of Indianapolis View Entire Review
I wish I was still there, or that I had done a whole year and not just a semester. I feel as though I've really grown as an anthropologist as well as a person from my time abroad. - SUNY - College at Geneseo View Entire Review
The experience abroad taught me just how much one can learn from being surrounded in the history they've been taught. To smell and feel the lessons, not simply study them, gives a greater understanding of the past therefore the future as well. - Marist 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.
