Welcome to the New American Fellows!
With a new school year, comes a new group of American Fellows. This year seven recent college graduates will be living and working at Anatolia through the Fellows Program. The Fellows Program was established in 1995 and has grown to seven positions throughout Anatolia’s academic divisions.
Fellows work in different academic departments and student support offices, and also assist greatly with club advising and Service as Action. Perhaps the Fellows’ greatest contribution is serving as cultural ambassadors and mentors to students.
Fellows Program Coordinator Christine Johnson says, “the exchange of ideas and cultural perspectives that occurs on campus among students and Fellows not only enriches student life, but also effectively prepares Anatolia students to be citizens of the world.”
The Program is run out of the U.S. College Counseling Office, and Director Arian Kotsi says that “the fellows bring to our school recent developments in their separate fields, as they have experienced them at their U.S. high schools and universities very recently. They also give our students who are thinking of studying in the U.S. the opportunity to better understand the U.S. system of higher education.”
For the Fellows, the Program offers the opportunity to gain experience in international education and immerse themselves in a new culture. Many take advantage of opportunities to travel and also participate in all that Thessaloniki has to offer.
Without further ado, below are the new Fellows. If you see them around campus please welcome them!
