Student Notes & Experiences:
My time in Greece was one of the most incredible and challenging experiences of my life. Living in the heart of Athens where democracy, religion, and Western civilization was formed helped me to understand and appreciate Greek culture as well as my own.
Visiting the places where so many important events took place was so much fun and I learned so much about history and Greek mythology and how the two are often mixed together.
I tried new things, like riding a donkey on Santorini, learning traditional folk dances and speaking Greek in the shops and markets. I was pushed and challenged, all the while learning about myself and my own strengths in the process. Studying in Greece was an experience of a lifetime, and I would not be the same if it weren't for my time there!
