What is your favorite travel memory?

All Athens-Delphi trips stand out because it is a great opportunity for all students to experience the beauties of Greece and at the same time to bond with each other, exchange ideas and benefit from their different backgrounds.

How have you changed/grown since working for your current institution?

I have discovered different sides of myself, when dealing with student problems but also with their daily routine. It makes me a better person as time goes by.

If you could go on any program that your institution offers, which one would you choose and why?

I would definitely choose the Go Greek program, it is quite unique and offers the opportunity for students to find out what is happening in Greece in a very short time. It's well structured with lots of activities and travels around Greece's main sights, as well as a strong academic program.

What makes your institution unique? When were you especially proud of your team?

In the American College of Thessaloniki both administration and academics are team players. I am proud of my team every time a student comes back to us with appreciation and a smile. The most important thing is to make students feel safe , and our teams have succeeded in doing so.

What do you believe to be the biggest factor in being a successful institution?

We should be always one step ahead, listening to what the international community is expecting, trying to find ways to satisfy study abroad students both academically and also administratively. Setting up student's expectations at the right level, helps them and us have better program results.
