Choosing the Right City for You

Athens

As the birthplace of democracy, Athens has had an extraordinary role in the history of the world. Celebrated as the ancient seat of classical thought, Greece’s cosmopolitan capital has always been a visually stunning city but visitors are often surprised to learn that it is also sophisticated and modern, with an efficient transport system, a young population, vibrant street life and a relaxed lifestyle. Affordable and lively, Athens is ideal for students interested in enjoying the best of both worlds—visiting historic archaeological sites such as the stunning Parthenon, the cobbled streets of the Plaka and the ancient churches while enjoying stylish shops, eclectic art galleries, funky coffee shops and modern clubs.

Social identity & access

One of the best things you can do before departure is enter into the journey knowing that your time abroad will be unique to this experience. The resources, community and support available to you when abroad will likely be different as well. In order to help you prepare for your experience, we have compiled many resources about social identity and access in specific locations abroad. Your program staff will also provide you with more details pre-departure and during orientation.

Having a guide for this experience was so helpful because they gave us a lot of information. Not only did they share basic facts about Delphi, but they gave us backstories and other information that really helped us understand the full scope of the site’s history. After the tour of Delphi’s ruins, we took a guided tour of the museum. It was intriguing to be able to see everything that archaeologists were able to save and keep in semi-good condition.

Words are popping in my head to try to describe the perfect ways to express the way I feel about Athens, Greece. Getting to know the people that I have met … has made me realize that these are the moments that I live for: telling stories and gaining new ones with a group of people who had the courage to experience life abroad. I have learned a lot. I am appreciating every moment, every breath, and every taste of Greece.

Our apartment is located very close to the university, which is in the northern part of Athens. I enjoy being where we are because it is not a tourist area and I feel like I can really embrace the culture. Everyone in town is friendly and generally speaks English, which I really appreciate.

It’s a great location with many opportunities to explore the city and learn about the history and culture. The food was great as well.

If you are looking for an adventure of growth and opportunity not worrying about what is to come but learning about life one step at a time then Greece is the right choice for you. It changed my life forever and I can’t thank AIFS enough for picking such a delightful place to reside for a semester’s worth of life. Greece is the word.”
