Study Abroad in Greece with Arcadia University

Arcadia Center in Greece &
Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure in Athens

Arcadia Center students volunteered in Athens with Alma Zois, the Panhellenic Association of Women with Breast Cancer. The students' involvement in Alma Zois was in support of Professor Eleni Calligas, an Arcadia faculty member in modern Greek history who is also a breast and lung cancer survivor.

This fall, the Arcadia Center for Hellenic, Mediterranean and Balkan Studies has begun to work wiith Alma Zois to help organize and run the first ever Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure in Athens in late September.
