Study Abroad in Greece with Arcadia University

Orientation in Greece

Return to Cultural Enrichment in Greece

Each semester begins with a week-long orientation led by Arcadia staff in Greece, during which you will be involved in daily intensive Modern Greek language classes.

Planned activities will give you a chance to establish friendships with other program students, learn your way around Athens, and practice your language skills.

Your orientation promises to end in a highly memorable way. You'll enjoy an exciting weekend field trip to a location outside of Athens such as the picturesque port city of Nauplio or the beautiful, tranquil island of Tzia.

Orientation will feature:

  • familiarization and informational sessions.

  • sessions about customs and traditions.

  • guidance concerning academic policies and procedures. 

  • advice to help you settle into housing.

  • information on health and safety and banking.

  • discussion of cross-cultural issues.
