What students and graduates say about the program

  • The people who taught me, from Psychology to Management professors were all very knowledgeable and up to date in their field. I was always motivated to go to class and learn from these great instructors. Every university has laptops, buildings, and classrooms...it's the people that make the difference. And during my time at Hellenic American College, I was lucky enough to meet many great people that made me believe in myself. If my professors at Hellenic American College hadn’t believed in me, and hadn’t given the best they could – as they do with every student – I wouldn't be where I am today.
