EDUCATION Journey to Greece Completes Eighth Season The annual AHEPA Journey to Greece Program completed its eighth successful season. Thirteen students from the United States and Canada participated during the two sessions offered at the University of Indianapolis, Athens, during the summer: Session One, June 25 to July 13, and Session Two, July 16 to August 3. 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."
