On September 25, 2017, ACT opened it’s doors to a record number of Study Abroad Students with over 400 students from 24 different Colleges and Universities around the United States. The American College of Thessaloniki is proud to celebrate its tenth anniversary as the host school for the N.U.in Program from Northeastern University. The 2017 N.U.in cohort is largely comprised of students in the STEM field, focusing their studies on the sciences and technology. ACT also is the proud host of the second cohort of ‘Mentorship in Greece’ students from the American University in Washington, D.C. Both the N.U.in Program and the AU Mentorship in Greece Program are unique in the area of study abroad as they focus on offering community style study abroad to first-year university students in their first semester of studies. Starting their studies abroad, students in these programs bring a unique viewpoint back with them to their home school that enriches their academic experience. All study abroad students at ACT enjoy the opportunity to engage in various hands-on educational experiences, giving back to the community through service learning, excursions to cultural and historical sites throughout Greece, and participation in clubs and on sports teams for a holistic experience.
