The Summer 2020 issue of Connect is now being mailed to university alumni and can be downloaded here. Largely put together during the COVID-19 lockdown, the issue features some of the initiatives Hellenic American University and the Hellenic American University Alumni Association took in response to this unprecedented health crisis. President Leonidas Phoebus Koskos discusses the University’s transition to synchronous online classes and remote administrative operations. Vasilis Elaiotrivaris, President of the Alumni Association, writes about Plan B initiative, a series of live broadcasts hosted by the Alumni Association. You’ll also find an account of the workout sessions and master-class series organized during the lockdown by the Office of Student Affairs and International Programs.

This issue features the Success Stories of alumni Vasilis Anastopoulos (MSIT ’11) and John Nikolaides (BAELL ’18), while the Faculty Spotlight sheds light on Greg Barton and Eduardo Lucena González, both of whom not only teach in the undergraduate General Education program but also coach the Hellenic American College soccer team.

Adjunct faculty member, Valentini Andreoula (MAAL ’17) describes the cooperation between Hellenic American University and the NGO Faros and their common efforts to provide educational opportunities to unaccompanied refugee minors.

In this issue will also find the latest administrative updates and, as always, a roundup of news of faculty and alumni accomplishments—from new publications and participation in conferences to entrepreneurial activities.
