Through time in Athens, Crete, and Santorini, students experience Greek culture, including the Cretan lifestyle and diet, which boasts the longest lifespan in the world. Alongside enjoying Greek cuisine and cooking lessons, we learn what it means to be a citizen of the world, including the basics of global literacy. The rest of our time in “the land where people forget to die” is spent learning about Greek ceramics, weaving, music, dancing, and philosophy as well as the production of olive oil, wine, cheese, and honey.
Financial Aid: Need-based aid may be available.
Coleen Zoller, Associate Professor of Philosophy

This was hands down, one of the most amazing experiences of my life. I immediately felt at home, and fell in love. One day I know I'll have to go back--Jessica Ram, 2017 program
Want to have a trip of a lifetime? GO Greece! This program not only made me more globally literate, want to travel more, and fall in love with the Greek culture, but it took me on a journey of changing my heart, mind, and soul. - Kayla Schneider, 2017 program
The experiences you have are a once in a lifetime. Not many college students can say that they visited the ancient ruins of human history and also embrace a culture that was very accepting of others. -Student on 2015 program
I loved the times we traveled to lesser known places in Crete such as the little villages and markets. -Student on 2015 program
You learn things you never even think about [before]. There is a whole other world there that can be discovered. Everything is beautiful and inspiring. It makes you want to change who you are. -Student on 2014 program
About GO Short
Through intentional programming, students make the most of their short-term study abroad on GO Short programs. You will study away with Susquehanna faculty/staff leading a small group of Susquehanna classmates, all of whom have participated in the program’s preparation (i.e. GO Prep) course in the semester prior to departure. After an intensive, active program, there is a reflection course for the program to optimize your cross-cultural learning. As these programs run during winter or summer breaks and are 2-6 weeks, they are great opportunities for students to study away without committing to a full semester.
