5 ACG Students Travel to South Korea with the Support of Athenian Brewery

The American College of Greece is honored to receive Athenian Brewery’s support of five DEREE students’ studies at the 2014 Kyungpook National University (KNU) Global Summer School, that brings together students and academics from all over the world. ACG students are already in South Korea, living a unique study abroad experience that allows them to broaden their academic and cultural horizons.

The students attending the summer program at KNU are Samy Chafez, Maria Korre, Dimitris Lykouris, Maria-Zoe Papaioannou, and George Raskovic . In his “thank you” letter to the Athenian Brewery, Lykouris notes that “this experience will be extremely beneficial both for my personal and for my professional life,” echoing his fellow students. Raskovic says that the experience will provide him “with very important knowledge on the background of East Asia, which is one of the fastest developing economies of our time,” while Korre underlines that “in such difficult times, this scholarship represents an open-mindedness and belief in our generation and we, and specifically I, appreciate that.”

Athenian Brewery and The American College of Greece joined forces to offer students an unforgettable experience and an incomparable opportunity to develop their academic skills through an intercultural learning program.
