About My Study Abroad Program

Major/Minor: Economics
Program: College Year in Athens
Location: Athens, Greece
Term: Summer 2019


Why did you choose to study abroad and how did you select your program?
I chose this program because Greece has always been on my bucket list. Various classes within the program travel to many different places in Greece, including a few islands, so I thought this would be the perfect opportunity to see a lot of Greece. The classes seemed really cool too.


What did you learn about yourself?
I learned to slow down, drink coffee, and enjoy time connecting with others.


What is one of your favorite memories from your program?
My favorite memory is hiking up a castle for sunrise.


What advice do you have for future study abroad students?
Explore as much as you can!


Would you do it again?


How were your classes abroad different than if you would have taken them at UNC?
My class abroad had less tests and I was able to use creativity for every project.
