Study Abroad and Domestic Study Away

Annabeth in Greece

Communication major Annabeth Gibbons ’20 studied in Greece with the Athletes Abroad program at Webster University Athens

Studying abroad in Greece was such a life changing experience for me. I arrived in Athens in March of 2019 and was completely wowed by what surrounded me. While I had been abroad in Europe the previous summer, it was nothing like living in Greece. I was able to study Greece history and art classes and actually go to sites that we learned about. I think I went to the Parthenon 5 times in less than 3 months! I have remained friends with the girls I lived with and we still talk almost every day. 


While I was only around for about 3 months I was able to do quite a bit of traveling. My school went on many trips all over Greece to see different historical sites. I had 10 days off for spring break so a friend and I went to Italy. We had so much fun and ate way too much pizza! After my classes were over I had the opportunity to travel the Greek islands. All together I went to 7 islands and they were all so unique and beautiful in their own way. 


Studying abroad is something that I think about every day. The memories and friends I made over there I’ll forever treasure.
