The Journey to Greece program is
specially designed to immerse young
students in a wonderful learning experience celebrating Greek society and
culture. The program offers college
students up to 12 transferable credits.
The students studied Greece's unique
culture, history, art, politics, and religion through courses and fun cultural
excursions that included:
* Modern Greek Language,
* Greek History and Politics,
* Greek Policy and Mass Media, and
* Visits to sites of interest in the
Peloponnese, Thessaly, Macedonia,
and the Greek islands.
"This year, we had a dynamic group
of students who will be afforded a
once-in-a-lifetime experience to learn
about Greece and earn college credits all while making friendships that
will last a lifetime," Supreme President
Anthony Kouzounis said. "I'm proud
AHEPA is able to offer such as rewarding opportunity to these bright students."
