Thiel College WXTC Radio Interview of Athena – Budgeting for Study Abroad

Thiel’s College WXTC Radio (88.1 FM) welcomed Athena’s President to talk about study abroad as part of the “Shake Your Money Maker” show on budgeting for study abroad.

One of the most common concerns about studying abroad is how to afford it. Stacy answered Jessica, Carrie and Annmarie’s questions about the different study abroad options, programs, scholarships and financial aids that Athena Study Abroad provides to help students make studying abroad possible.

We can’t wait to help more of our hometown Thiel students explore the world!
