Fall 2020 / Spring 2021

Arcadia's commitment to both our students' experience abroad and their health and safety will be most evident in our approach to planned excursions and events. We will follow all local guidelines and restrictions put in place and ensure our students are maintaining social distancing practices, if required, throughout any activity. As the semester approaches and conditions for the fall become clearer, we will announce more specifics on planned activities to showcase local communities and locations.

Excursions & Activities

Arcadia includes many fun and exciting excursions, events and activities - many of which are free and included in your program! Try the directed walks around the city of Athens included in the Greek Key Course, welcoming you into the extraordinary cultural, historical, architectural and social highlights of this famous place and giving context to your studies. You’ll take in the oldest city in Europe from iconic landmarks such as The Acropolis and fascinating museums and galleries to neighborhood sweet shops and cafes and vibrant street markets.

You also have a range of optional excursions and events to join such as the exciting visit to Olympiakos Football stadium to watch a soccer game, authentic Greek cooking classes and hikes to scenic spots such as the Hymettos Mountain. Contact your program manager for specific program excursions.

All Arcadia excursions are designed to be fun, interactive learning opportunities where you can visit places of exceptional interest in the country and enjoy experiences that help to illuminate your studies and to introduce you to other students and locals. You could also earn a Co-curricular Learning Certificate (CLC).
