Kassidy Coplan / Summer 2016 / Minnesota State University, Mankato, MN
Where do I even begin? My study abroad experience in Greece far exceeded my wildest dreams, and I have the HISA family to thank for that. The professors were passionate and excited about the subjects they taught, which made learning far more interesting. The field trips and hands-on experiences made the information easy to understand and fun to learn. The staff was always there for us, always easily approachable and consistently available to answer any questions we had. The program directors and professors genuinely care about their students and took the time to get to know us on a personal level. The HISA community is a family, and they made me feel right at home. The relationships I formed with the students and staff will be something I cherish for a lifetime. Best of all, I know that when I choose to return to Paros Island, I will be welcomed back with open arms. I could go on and on about how this experience positively impacted my life, but I highly suggest you experience it for yourself.
