Exceeded any expectation

The entire experience far exceeded any expectation I had for the program. The courses were great, made better by teachers who are genuinely interested in you getting the most out of the class rather than grades, Yuko and Barry the most incredible and giving people who genuinely went above and beyond to ensure we all had the absolute best experience. They were most helpful during the initial decision process and seemed to genuinely want to help get me there.

After being in Greece I have come to appreciate their relaxed life style.They truly take time to simply enjoy and appreciate everything around them.

All of the class field trips were great!

I chose Athena because everything seemed well organized, scholarships were available. Just going to the coffee shop every morning and surrounding myself with the locals really taught me a lot, and I learned a lot their culture. I have more appreciation for other cultures.

I loved my apartment, I don't think it could have been any more perfect. It was also very nice having someone who was native to Florence to talk to (organisers). I personally always felt safe when walking around Florence, even at night.

Great experience

My advisor Irene was amazing! My housing was PERFECT! So clean and beautiful. Athena staff were by far the most attentive, knowledgable and friendly!

I am much more self aware but in the sense that I am not the only person in the world who matters. I felt very safe throughout all of my experiences in Florence, even if it was very late at night/early in the morning I was never scared, but I would recommend traveling in groups just to be safe. I would encourage students to take full advantage of all the LDM or Athena Field trips offered, while still traveling on your own or with travel programs in your country!

I'm a writer for Odyssey and I wrote my study abroad experience as a whole, feel free to share it!

I always felt very safe!

I chose this Athena program because I was interested in the courses being taught and had never been to that region of the world. I loved the idea of studying those two subjects in a place like Thailand, and Athena offered that.

My time in Thailand was truly a once in a lifetime experience. I had an amazing group of students and two awesome teachers. We got to experience Thai culture, try new foods, visit beautiful temple, enjoy time on the beach, and spend a day with elephants, all while taking classes. Our excursions were definitely the best school field trips ever! They offered variety and the ability to see so many different places and sights around Thailand.

Very good

Athena seemed to have the best program options. This was the only one I could find for a right amount of time and a location in Asia.

All the excursions were great! Loved them all. Felt very safe the whole time. Great nightlife, good opportunities to attend cultural events. I have learned more abut Asian cultures. The instructors: Jennifer Norris and Ashleigh Force made the biggest impact while abroad. They were very helpful and fun during our program and made it the best they could make it.
