Student Life and Student Services

Hellenic American College supports students in their academic and personal development through a broad array of academic services and co-curricular experiences. These include formal academic support services such as student mentoring and advising, academic tutoring, and help with academic writing and library research, as well as personal and professional services such as clinical counseling and career development.

These services are complemented by a broad range of co-curricular activities to enrich learning, foster communication and leadership skills and enhance student employability. These activities include clubs such as the Toastmasters and the Psychology Club, student participation in national and regional competitions, and presentations at research conferences. Student government is another opportunity for co-curricular learning. The five members of the Student Council are elected by their peers to represent and promote student concerns in the framework of University governance.

Other activities are designed to expose students to the breadth of professional opportunities in their chosen area of studies and help them acquire a sense of what it is like to work in the field. These experiences have recently included student participation in EU-funded research projects, student recitals and concerts for students in the Bachelor of Music program, field placements with social service charities (BSPSY) and pro bono interpreting opportunities at NGOs.
