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.

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

A student studying abroad with University of Indianapolis: Athens - Odyssey in Athens
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

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.
