FAMILY BUSINESS SINCE 2005 Athena’s focus on personalized programs and service makes perfect sense since we are a family business! Stacy founded Athena in 2005 after working in the international education field for years. She noticed study abroad students would benefit from an organization focused on immersion and smaller, personalized overseas experiences ... so she created one. A few years later, her husband John joined Athena full-time and there has been no stopping this globe-trotting duo ever since! 5

“Simply being in

such a beautiful country with such well planned cultural excursions was amazing and I felt by the end...I could have made it on my own in Japan...”

WHAT STUDY ABROAD TAUGHT ME

“Studying abroad has shown me

just how more accepting some other countries can be... [my experiences in Japan] made me want to pass that universal kindness on to others...”


When one thinks of Japan they usually first think of Tokyo. And for good reason! This city is unlike any other. As one of the largest cities in the world, its ability to merge Japanese pop culture and traditional Japan creates an architectural hybrid city that showcases the ultramodern with neon-lit skyscrapers, and historic with its temples. In contrast, Kyoto is a Japanese city that calls back to its historical and traditional roots. Students will be able to experience Kyoto during July, its Gion Festival month. The festival gives you a glimpse into the enchanting traditional Japan.

This one-of-a-kind program will give you the opportunity to truly explore Tokyo and Kyoto and both their surrounding areas.

Quito is one of the world’s most overlooked gems. South American, European and indigenous elements infuse the city. This is why UNESCO - a primary authority on recognizing locations of significance - declared the capital of Quito as the very first World Heritage site. The Old City is rich with history, charming windy streets, and excellent shopping and eating. Quito is a marvelous contemporary city with all the modern amenities you would expect in the U.S. But the main reason Quito is so great: the people.

It’s like a city in the clouds. Quite literally. Cusco sits perched amidst the clouds and the lush Andean greenery 11,000 feet above sea level. According to legend, a mythical monarch founded the city of Cusco at the beginning of the 13th century BC. Under Incan rule, the empire grew and developed. You will recognize that today the city is surrounded by the wealth of its Incan history, while offering the comforts of a modern and internationally known town. Cusco’s people are welcoming and proud of their rich culture. This truly is an exciting place to live, enjoy, and learn Spanish.

WHY I LOVED STUDYING LONDON

WHY I CHOSE ATHENA

The Athena reps were the most helpful of the program reps that I spoke to, and they were quick to respond to emails and calls.”


London is the New York City of Europe. There is so much to do here, whenever you want to do it. Whether it’s theater, sports, nightlife, arts, or fashion, London has it.

When you’re at the heart of Old Aberdeen, you feel like you’re on the set of Harry Potter, surrounded by Gothic buildings and archways.

WHY I LOVED FLORENCE

WHY I CHOSE ATHENA

The experience of living on our own in an apartment right down the street from the Duomo was incredible. It gave us a sense of what it is truly like to live in another country. ”

Friends & peers have recommended this program to me. My friends who have chosen Athena have said nothing but positive things... Athena made my trip so much better!”


You’re in for a treat. Florence is one of the most popular places to study abroad for a reason. The art, the culture, the incredible historic city streets - it becomes part of you while you are there. Florence was the heart of the Italian Renaissance, where artists such as Michaelangelo and DaVinci roamed the streets. Before that, Florence was a Medieval powerhouse. These two eras’ distinct vibes live on through the priceless works of art and incredible architecture that you will take in, as you stroll the cobblestone streets. CITY PERKS: Tons to do without big-city hassles ... easy travel to other European gems.

Why Athena’s Florence? When: Fall, Spring, Summer, J-term Who: Sophomore, Junior, Senior GPA: 2.8 or higher City Size: Medium Housing: Apartments, Homestays Favorite Of: The Artist, &

Have you ever been amazed, inspired and awed by something so much you thought your head might explode? It’s sort of like that. Yes, Rome has the history. The Colosseum, the Forum, the Vatican. But it’s not a museum, it’s living. The bustling city embraces these large monuments of history, and doesn’t tear them down. It’s everyday life in Rome to live amongst the history most can only read about in books. While you wander through the open-air markets and outdoor cafés of the city’s wealth of piazzas, it becomes evident that Rome continues to make history, and you have the privilege to be part of it!

WHY I CHOSE ATHENA

I chose Athena because I heard the program was small and personable like my home college.”


Time traveling back to a simpler time. That’s what Tuscania’s like, and it’s incredible. The city walls call back to a previous royal era, the town’s 7th-century church is still in use, and the population of 8,000 brings a sense of community that you didn’t know still existed. It’s absolutely charming. Also, Tuscania is not far from Rome, as this medieval town is nestled in the Italian hillside about an hour and 20 minutes north of the capital city. TOWN PERKS: A place that has inspired artists for centuries, Tuscania has developed a reputation for new artistic forms of expression including film, art, architecture, and more.

ACADEMICS at LdM

WHY WE PARTNER WITH LdM-TUSCANIA: LdM-Tuscania was the first school that Athena partnered with due to its nearly identical mission of bringing study abroad back to simpler roots based on individualized education. The school and the location demonstrate strong academics & a pure vision of study abroad.

EXPERIENCE: The small town embraces the students of this program, which allows you to be easily immersed into the culture.

“My role as student advisor is very rewarding; students all get very close to the local people and to the town itself.”

On the Tour of Italy program, you will visit three distinct Italian cultures, so it’s a little difficult to sum the country up in one generalized description. But the common themes throughout each location are: strong sense of community, incredible historical ties and excellent academics! You will start off as part of the small town Tuscania, which gives a rich feel of rural Italy. Then, you will stay for a month in Rome, Italy’s largest and most historical city. You will end your semester in Florence, a medium-sized city with world-renowned charm for its Renaissance role.

It’s so interesting to see how other countries live & [traveling] has widened both my appreciation towards different ways of life and increased my desire to travel more!”

The program activities were great! I saw so many places in Catalonia that on my own I would have never ventured to.”


Incredible. That’s what it’s like. Barcelona is a one-of-akind city, truly one of the great cities of the world. The vibe of the city is young and fresh. Located in the northeastern coast of the Iberian Peninsula, Barcelona is a great place for you to spend a summer, semester or an academic year. It’s one of the most popular cities to study abroad in, so there are many international students in the area. The city is large, but not massive or overwhelming, so it is great for study abroad.

When: Fall, Spring, Summer Who: Sophomore, Junior, Senior GPA: 2.8 or higher City Size: Large Housing: Apartments, Homestays Favorite Of: The Culture Diver Credit Range: 3-15 credits Internships: Yes

Barcelona is known for its lively atmosphere. You’ll never be lacking for something to do, that’s for sure!

I had never visited Europe before & Sevilla made it my favorite continent. I met truly remarkable people. Sevillanos taught me to be happy from sunrise to sunset!”


You know a song with mellow verses, but at the refrain it explodes with that catchy melody that you just can’t get out of your head? Seville is like that. It’s a city that has an incredible combination of that mellow Mediterranean vibe, with the trademark Spanish vitality. Seville has an inviting and even hypnotic energy that is focused on community, socializing and enjoying life. It doesn’t hurt that the weather and the culture are fantastic, too. The city has everything you’d want in a study abroad destination, without being overwhelming.

Most short-term programs are pre-structured for you, including items such as field trips, extra courses, homestays, and in some cases, upgraded housing.

86

We recognize that while these inclusions are helpful for many, the extra cost associated with these can prevent some from going abroad. So, Athena has decided to do something different and put you in the driver’s seat... We have broken out the pricing of specific summer programs so now you can add on only the extras you want and can afford. See ALaCarte.AthenaAbroad.com for more information.

Enrich your experience abroad and boost your resume with an internship. We’ve put together a wide variety of internships at several locations.

FOR-CREDIT INTERNSHIPS

www.AthenaAbroad.com

The internships that we have at Athena are for-credit and are done alongside a regular course of study. So rather than being paid, you will receive credits for the work you do, and gain international working experience - something that is in high demand, and only gaining steam!

HOW IT WORKS First, you apply to the program you wish to attend. If you are accepted, then you will be directed to an intern-specific application, which can vary depending on the program. Typically, you will submit a resume and do either an in-person or written interview so we can match you with your best fit. Please note that internship deadlines may be sooner that the standard deadline so be sure to apply early! See Intern.AthenaAbroad.com for more information.

Volunteering is an important part of our mission at Athena, and we want to make every opportunity available to our students to volunteer abroad. Please help give back to the world that gives us so much! Contact us for more details.

Many of our locations allow students to volunteer, and some examples include: * * * *

We at Athena know that costs and finances are typically at the heart of the question “can I study abroad?” Athena is committed to working to figure out more ways to make study abroad as accessible to students as possible, and the Price Freeze is our most recent initiative aimed to help our students! –– Athena’s “Price Freeze” feature allows you to freeze the current published cost of the location and term of your desired study abroad program for up to 24 months! Because prices can change from year to year, this offers one more way for you to lock in your program price and to budget accordingly for programs in the future. And the best part is you don’t have to do anything special to get this offer! Just start an application and pay your application fee!

There’s a buzz about Athena! From being the only study abroad organization to be recognized by international offices for FIVE straight years as a GoAbroad.com People’s Choice selection, to receiving international recognition in being named winner of the “Enlightened Employer” award at the Women in International Education awards in Berlin, to enhancing the lives of people in the global and local community, there’s always “much ado” about Athena!
