how to get advising

I've led two study abroad programs for IAP, both three-week courses in Greece.  Although the programs were designed to help students explore Greek history, I believe that the greatest value in study abroad, even in an old place like Greece, comes from direct contact with the modern, living culture.  By observing another way of life, every traveler can learn quite a lot about other people but even more about her or himself.  My programs, therefore, were designed to encourage all the students to interact as much possible with "everyday" Greeks, and so we frequently went off the beaten path.  In both cases, the students became tight-knit groups, supporting each other while abroad and forging friendships that have lasted well beyond their time in Greece.
