Truly Hard to Describe in Words...

I had to fortunate opportunity to go on the LEAD Greece program this past summer. I must say in all honesty, it was the most incredible summer of my college career. Greece was such a beautiful place with amazing culture, food, and ummm… wine haha. However, the real reason I had the experience I did was because of the people. The other students on the program, as well as the LEAD staff (hi guys!!! miss you all!!) were everything. I know for a fact the reason Greece was so hard to leave was because of these people. It was an unfortgettable experience and if you are reading this right now and thinking of going…. GOOOO!!! YOU WILL NEVER FOR A SECOND REGRET IT!! Seriously, prepared for your life to be changed, along with the best sunset and tan you will ever have :)

How can this program be improved?
Some of the class assignments felt invaluable... there were some good ones! I just felt like we spent a lot of time in the classroom. Since we WERE in Greece, we could have gone out and done lessons that took more advantage of the culture.
Yes, I recommend this program

Summer in Paradise :)

Going to Greece with LeadAbroad is by far one of the best decisions I have ever made. I made amazing memories, met some of my best friends, and learned so much about myself. Life has it's ups and downs, I'm sure you all know that, but I will say that Greece was one of life's highest ups I've yet to experience. Everyone genuinely cares about each other, and the program staff do more than just help with anything and everything, they become your friends. From bungee jumping to a day on a catamaran to laying out at the pool to hiking the Samaria Gorge to working with the Salvation Army, things couldn't have been more amazing. I recommend this program to anyone who wants to either study abroad or just travel for a summer. It's a once in a lifetime experience. I am constantly missing Greece and the amazing people I met. So take a leap of faith and join our LeadAbroad family <3
