Deree College’s president and administrators, as well as dozens of students from the Athens-based college, joined Semester at Sea administrators, faculty, staff and students to celebrate a new agreement between Semester at Sea and Deree that will expand and strengthen SAS’s global program.
The new agreement will allow students attending Deree, a division of the American College of Greece, to enroll in and experience the Semester at Sea program.
“The agreement with the American College of Greece underscores Semester at Sea’s long-standing commitment to fully internationalize the program,” said Les McCabe, president of the Institute for Shipboard Education. “We are excited to welcome students from Deree College—such an impressive institution of higher learning—to future voyages of Semester at Sea.”
More than a dozen students from Deree College attended an open ship event to meet Semester at Sea students, tour the MV Explorer and learn more about the program, during the special day-long event in Greece. SAS students also participated in a panel discussion about the program and their experiences.
“We are very eager to partner with this very outstanding program,” said David Horner, Deree College’s president.
