Celebrating International Education Week 2022, Fulbright Greece-EducationUSA Athens hosted a live Webinar on November 15 where alumni advisees shared their thoughts on studying and living in the U.S, personal experiences and how their choices impacted their lives.
Errika Papadopoulou and Orestis Lykouropoulos (Class of 2017) participated in an interactive event which highlighted their paths and achievements and offered advice to those interested in U.S. undergraduate studies. Errika and Orestis provided their insights and “best practices” on selecting and applying to the higher education institutions in the U.S. and finding the right fit. The informative session was coordinated by Nicholas Tourides, Educational Advisor/American Program Coordinator who offered a brief intro on advising services at Fulbright Greece and raised questions to help initiate a dialogue between the two speakers and the audience.
Thirty students, parents, counselors and educators from around the country participated and were able to chat online with the guest speakers.
