Samford in Greece

An adventure in Greece finds you following the footsteps of Plato and of Paul as you explore the ancient ruins, the rugged mountains, the timeless sculptures, the peaceful beaches, the historic battles, the savory cuisine, the haunting poetry that is Hellas, which is Greek for Greece.

Greece: The Crucible of Civilization (Classics 303, 4 credits) guides students through winding streets to the foot of the Acropolis pictured above, then through its gateway to the base of the Parthenon.  This is the heart of Athens, birthplace of democracy, and just one of many incredible classrooms in which you will experience with all your senses the epic of Homer, the tragedy of Sophocles, the wisdom of Socrates and the journeys of Paul.
