    Campus Safety

    There are security guards at both entrances, and you have to scan to get into the school. I have night classes and have never felt in danger.

    Greek Life

    I don't know if it's a thing here in Greece, I guess everyday is Greek life XD

    Clubs and Activities

    There is a club called Better Days 4 Strays, and they go into the nearby woods where a shelter is located. You get to walk and care for the dogs.

    Great for these types of students

    Great for laid back students or people who want to learn to relax a little and become a part of a more relaxing culture.

    Share any unusual traditions or locations on campus

    Local students and teachers being late to class happens. And smoking on campus is normal here.

    Bang for the buck

    It's definitely worth it to be here.

    What to do for fun

    Take metro into main part of Athens, go into town Aghia Paraskevi. You can also go out to the local pub "Play" Where Americans and Greeks hang out.

    Food and Dining

    Food here is great quality! Only problem might be the hours of the main restaurant, it's only 12-6pm and they stop cooking at 4.

    Dorm Life

    Dorms are nice and homey, they have nice living room areas too. Sometimes the plumbing has issues, but the people in charge help immediately if you ever have a problem. It's a really close knit community for study abroad.

    Academic Rigor

    Wow the academics here are not as rigorous as back in the U.S. Homework isn't as huge a thing here. The grading system is different. When assignments are assigned they are worth a lot, so do your best on them.

    Tips for prospective students

    Don't get the meal plan, or at least not in huge quantities. It's more of a lunch service. Take notes in class like you usually would, don't not do it because the locals aren't.

    In three sentences

    This college is very different from an American University. The Greek students are very friendly. There are many resources for study here.
