Fascinating study abroad outside and inside the classroom

Arcadia University, in partnership with Earlham College, allows you to step out of your comfort zone and experience the full mosaic of Greek culture. Become an active participant in the Greek community and learn about Greek culture through experience. The wonders of this magnetic ancient and modern country will be yours to explore.  

Greece and Athens are not what you expect. Friendly and a little intimidating; a mixture of noisy chaos and calm quiet. Small, familiar, welcoming neighborhoods and traffic-rich downtown avenues. Peaceful coastline and a thriving nightlife; street markets and couture. Chaos and coffee.
