Immersion opportunities in Athens could include getting involved in extracurricular activities on campus, spending time doing memorable activities with those you live with, and/or getting involved with a group in the local community that shares your interests or helps you develop new interests.

Here is a list of specific activities that BCA Athens students can get involved in to experience a fuller sense of cultural immersion during their time in Greece:

  • Greek dancing lessons
  • Greek cooking classes
  • Hiking and climbing excursions
  • Basketball
  • Volleyball
  • Horseback riding
  • Sailing
  • Scuba diving
  • Fencing lessons
  • Joining a local gym
  • Weekend visits to a monastery (e.g. Mt. Athos for men)
  • Weekend skiing on Mt. Parnassos (spring semester)
  • Running the Classic Marathon (fall semester)

(Please be aware that some of these activities require supplemental fees.)
