Overall Experience
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
I've never been overseas in my life and this program opened my eyes into the world. I'm studying International Management and now I'm willing to go overseas to work. It was a great experience. - Eastern Illinois University View Entire Review
I gained a lot of independece and the ability to appreciate other cultures rather than judge them. I also gained comfort that I can find wonderful friends no matter where I am. - Transylvania University View Entire Review
YES!!! Now that I have studied abroad I cant stop thinking about all of the other places I want to travel. I loved every aspect of studying abroad, especially in Greece. Greece has so much to offer (history, islands, etc) that I was never bored. Every weekend I was traveling somewhere, either within Greece or outside of Greece. ... - SUNY - College at Geneseo View Entire Review
It was very worthwhile, and exposed me to an ancient culture that could not be experienced in the United States - SUNY - College at Geneseo View Entire Review
My academic interests have not changed, however my cultural awareness has been greatly heightened. I gained a greater appreciation for diversity and history. I also found out that Americans are not as hated as I assumed, which has helped me to restore my own pride in my country. The ability for people living in different coun... - University of Indianapolis View Entire Review
Study abroad in Athens was a life changing experience! I made many friends, American and Greek. I loved it so much I plan to go back next summer!! - Grand Valley State University View Entire Review
This experience changed my life in so many ways. It was definitely worthwhile. In the year since, I moved 3000 miles from home, on my own. Slept in hostels, airports, and huts. I take spontaneous trips, I am ready for anything at a moments notice. And I wouldn't have thought I could do any of it without my study abroad experienc... - Temple University 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 fell in love with traveling as soon as I stepped foot in this foreign country. I loved learning about differnt cultures and hearing/learning different languages. I know that whatever I do with the rest of my life, it will involve traveling and soaking in as much as I can about the people of the world. - SUNY - College at Cortland View Entire Review
I learned a lot about the Greek culture. It allowed me to compare the differences between Greece and the United States. I had such a great time and would not change my experience for anything. - University of Indianapolis View Entire Review
Studying abroad has not only made me appreciate other cultures more, it has also made me appreciate my home country more as well. I am more intersted than ever to expand my cultural awareness through self-study and future travel. - University of Indianapolis View Entire Review
The University of Indianapolis at Athens Odyssey abroad program is a very worthwhile experience. Greece and Athens are both a unique wonderful place study and travel in. The food is great, the people are extremely hospitable, and you never feel like you are alone even if you are traveling by yourself. The city has such an alive... - University of Indianapolis 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.
