HOUSING:
The university housing facilities are clean, comfortable, and very conveniently located. They are all in the Plaka area -where the Athens Campus is located. The apartments are fully furnished with refrigerator, stove, washing machine, cooking utensils, pots, pans, dishes, beds, desks, AC, and ADSL wireless high speed internet service. The apartments are walking distance to the school. 
 
Odyssey students share the apartment with other Odyssey students. Typically there are 4 in each apartment (2 share a bedroom), however there is the option of a single room for an additional charge, if there is availability. We have a couple apartments that are larger and accommodate up to 10 students.  They also feature 2 bathrooms, 2 refrigerators and are much larger than the other apartments.  The apartments are in a safe area.  In the immediate vicinity of the apartments are the University facilities (with classrooms, computer lab- the library and cultural center is a 5 minute walk), banks, post offices, grocery stores, cafes, restaurants, souvenir stores, hotels, and the main shopping district in Athens – Ermou Street.  Everything is within walking distance, including the public transportation system –metro- tram- buses, etc. which is a 5 minutes walk.
 
EXCURSIONS:
One of the highlights of the program is the excursions around Greece. Some of the sites visited have been Ancient Olympia, Delphi, Mycenae and Corinth in addition to Nafplio, Epidavros, Meteora (famous Byzantine Monasteries), Sparti-Mystras (Byzantine city) and Monemvasia (Byzantine town).  Also, the students have travelled to nearby islands of Hydra, Aegena, Poros and Spetes on one day islands trips. This is just to give you an idea of some of the sites visited.
 
EXTRA CURRICULAR:
In addition the Odyssey students have participated in the various activities from traditional Greek dancing and Greek cooking classes to the Community Service learning course where they volunteered at various sites around Athens, such as a refugee center and a rescue center for injured sea turtles. This was really a unique experience for some of them.  Some of them even took advantage of a unique Scuba diving course offered only at Webster University Athens.
