My Experience at The American College of Greece

October 1, 2022
By Breanna Jones

I was on the fence about studying abroad in Greece because I was the only student from my university who choose Greece, I know now that this was the best decision I’ve ever made. I studied abroad at the American College of Greece for the Spring semester in 2022 and will forever reflect on my time in this inviting country. The Academic and Housing staff for students abroad at ACG were very supportive and truly cared about the success of all their students. The dorms and college were in Agia Paraskevi which was a safe neighborhood with many stores for all your needs within walking distance, and downtown Athens was only a quick metro ride away!

ACG made sure to contribute to the knowledge of international students by hosting multiple excursions where we were able to not only learn about the history of Greece but also immerse ourselves in the culture as well. My favorite trips hosted by ACG included the downtown Athens tour, Acropolis tour, and the day trip to Nafplion. This gave me the opportunity to explore beautiful landmarks, learn about history and meet other students who were housed in different buildings.

What I am most grateful for after my time at ACG, was the community and memories it left me with. I met such wonderful people that I will cherish forever and am still adding to that community! I chose to document my experience online through YouTube, where I share my experience at ACG in hope to attract more people to study at this wonderful institution, because of how impactful this experience was on my life. Through this documentation, ACG not only gave me a platform to add to the community they left me with but also gave me the opportunity to encourage or help others to take the leap and consider ACG as their study abroad institution. So, if you are looking for a place that supports you in all your academic endeavors, cares about your success, and takes you in as their own, then ACG is the place for you. Take a chance, choose Greece, choose ACG!
