Being an American Student in Greece -American College of Thessaloniki

Being a student at ACT was overall a very positive experience. I have to say that the most I’ve learned in college thus far has been my year living in Thessaloniki. During this time I was able to immerse myself in Greek culture, travel all over Europe and Africa, make friends from all over the U.S. and Europe, solo travel, show my family around North Greece, complete two semesters of university, and so much more.

ACT is a hidden gem in Greece and I would choose to study here a thousand times over. I love that the city and university is off the beaten path of Greek/ European tourism, but that you’re also very close to some of the best tourism on earth. The campus is in the mountains and is relaxing and beautiful. It’s small and quaint and the people are friendly and welcoming.

Study abroad exposed me to what I want to pursuit in my life and it gave me so much love for travel. Read here on 3 ways study abroad has enhanced my life.

Some of the highlights of studying at the American College of Thessaloniki are the field trips that ACT offers; my favorites are listed here.
