Gained a best friend. Learned about myself, learned to be more communicative and social, learned about other countries and religions, learned to be more confident in myself. Gained 3 months i will never forget. It was completely worthwhile. - Marist College View Entire Review
This trip was amazing, no lie. I gained so much knowledge about the world and life in general. The program opened my eyes to the whole other side of the world. It's amazing what three months in another country can do for a person. - University of Indianapolis View Entire Review
It was truly a once in a lifetime experience in which I was completely immersed in another culture. It was worthwhile because as a graduate student, I probably will not get the opportunity to travel abroad again! - University of Indianapolis View Entire Review

Past Review Amazing Trip!
international perspective; absolutely - University of Indianapolis View Entire Review
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
I can not express how mush I learned from the people there and the girls I lived with. I would not trade it for the world - SUNY - College at Geneseo View Entire Review

I learned a lot about myself and about other people. It was the adventure of a lifetime. - SUNY - Binghamton View Entire Review
I learned how to be more independent, and I learned more about myself. It was the greatest opportunity, and I would do it all over again if I could. - Adelphi University View Entire Review
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

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 learned a lot about myself, and I learned a lot about traveling internationally - SUNY - College at Geneseo View Entire Review
Studying abroad in Greece taught me so much and is definitely an experience that I will not forget. Through our daily experiences in Athens, Greece I learned so much about Greek culture. Our weekend excursions to Ancient Greek ruins and the island of Santorini allowed me to take in the rich history of Greece and learn more about... - University of Indianapolis 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

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.
