Η εμπειρία εισερχομένων φοιτητών στο Πάντειο Πανεπιστήμιο!
When I first came to Athens on 8th of February, 2016 I've already knew that it is going to be an experience which I will remember for all my life. First time I went to Panteion University for some registration stuff, ESN group brought Erasmus students to somewhere to create bonds between us. I think it succeeded because I am still talking with my friends since that day. In Athens I met a lot of amazing people and all of our professors were really good about their field. The most important thing that impressed me was the hospitality of international relations office. We were all more than welcomed there. For me, Athens is a wonderful city that a student can easily discover the different styles of life. Also it's an art city that an artist can find him/herself. If you want to participate, there are lot of opportunities to have great time with people from all over the world. Another perfect thing about Athens is, Refugees are really welcomed here. Making a documentary with refugee children was amazing.
Thanks to everyone for this memorable experience!
I was studying at Panteion University (Department of Social Anthropology) in the fall of 2015 and in the spring of 2016. As I am studying modern greek studies in my home country, it made a lot of sense to be an exchange student in the capital of Greece, Athens. One of the best things about Panteion was the many competent and proficient professors. There is offered a long list of really interesting courses and since I took quite some of them, my experiences tells me, that all the professors were working with the biggest interest and curiosity. Not all courses were offered in english, but mostly the professors were interested in finding a way for non-greek speaking students to take their courses. I was giving relevant texts to read and I had some rewarding talks and conversations with my professors (and other students not to forget!). There was also always a lot of help to get at the international office, if you got lost, could not get in contact with a professor or find a classroom. Besides all the academic, I had a very nice time in Athens enjoying the city its people and its chaos. I really felt at home and in the future I can definitely see myself living there. Also, even though I never really participated in any of the social events, it seems like there is a lot of social stuff going on and that people make friends for life. For me personally, I know that I got an amazing spanish friend for the rest of my life.
It sounds like a buzzword, but Erasmus IS a lifechanging experience. For me it was already the second time I had the chance to go with Erasmus to Greece. I planned to stay one semester in Athens at Panteion University, but I decided last minute to prolong my studies there and I never regretted it. I could improve my Greek, my knowledge about the country and my academic background. I met amazing people, inspiring professors and open fellow students. Also I had the chance to travel throughout the country. I didnt expect that, but I fell in love with Greece even more and now it is very hard to return to your daily routine at home.
