ATHENS – University of Connecticut Center for Hellenic Studies ‘Paideia’ Director Ilias Tomazos on January 6 shared an update on the progress of the study abroad program students visiting Greece including their meeting with U.S. Ambassador to Greece George Tsunis at the Ambassador’s residence in Athens.

“I am happy to report to you that yesterday, ‘Paideia’ study abroad students in Greece arrived in beautiful Rhodes,” Tomazos said via email. “As you know from December 27 to January 5 the students visited archaeological sites, museums and monuments of Greece, visited grandparents’ villages, and participated in celebrations welcoming the New Year.”

“Yesterday morning, before their departure for Rhodes, the students were invited to have breakfast with U.S. Ambassador in Athens George Tsunis at his residence,” Tomazos continued. “For the University of Connecticut students this became a great experience, an experience they will remember forever. All the students recognized what a great honor it was for them, for their families, and for their beloved school.”

“All the students were impressed with Ambassador Tsunis, with his very warm welcome, for his care and sensitivity towards the young students, with his comments and encouragement for public service, reminding them all that they are the future of America,” Tomazos noted, adding that “the Ambassador repeated again and again the importance of American students studying abroad and invited all to consider a semester in Greece.”
