Reviews


"For a month, I enjoyed blue waters, ancient ruins, and the company of the most loving, friendly people I have ever known. The bonds I made with the people in the program and with the Greek villagers through the community service opportunity was what made this program unforgettable. I recommend this program to anyone who wants to experience every aspect of Greek life."
--Nicole McCloskey

“Greek Summer was a totally eye-opening experience. In Greece, I met people who had a level of kindness I could only have dreamed of. The program itself still affects me today, as there is hardly a day I go without thinking about Greece. Greek Summer pushes your limits, expands your boundaries, and causes you to fall in love with one of the most beautiful countries in the world. It also teaches you to come into yourself, and develop and understand who you are as a person. This was perhaps one of the most valuable parts of the experience for me personally. All seriousness aside, it was also a fabulous time. I can think of very few places I would rather be than with 18 of my closest friends in Greece.”

“The memories I made during AFS Greek Summer have stayed with me since I participated in the program two summers ago. My sister went last summer and we shared the same host family who we continue to stay in touch with to this day! The experience brings an abundance of cultural awareness, lasting friendships, and incredible opportunities. Now in college, experiencing Greek Summer has boosted my resume and made me excited to eventually study abroad. I highly recommend this program to anyone looking to experience an exciting summer full of adventure!”
