Student Spotlight

Olivia LaRocco joined the Overseas Program student taught in English classrooms, working with primary and secondary schooll children in Thesaloiniki during the Spring of 2019." My absolute favorite part of Greece's culture was the hospitality and warmth I received from the people there. People really went out of their way to not only make me feel like I wasn't an outsider, but that I was actually an accepted and appreciated member of the community."
