OIS Student Workers! Here to answer your questions!

  • My name is Anna Hu (she/her), I'm class of 2022 and majoring in Biochemistry with a minor in English. I was lucky enough to travel to Spain and then Greece for seven weeks each this past year, and I'd love to share my experiences with you and answer any questions you may have! I'll be popping into some of the zoom sessions and will be at the on-campus orientation, but if there's anything you want to talk about in the meantime -- whether that be CYA or Wellesley related --feel free to email me (ahu4@wellesley.edu) . There's so much for to explore in Greece, so I'm looking forward to helping you find the best experience and balance for you. I also can't wait to hear about all the new favorite places you find while abroad :) Here is one of mine --the ancient Agora of Athens!

  • Hi y'all! My name is Abby Martinage (she/her or they/them both work!) and I'm an incoming sophomore at Wellesley. I'm planning to major in English with Creative Writing, and thanks to my time in Athens (shoutout to Professor Eleni Fassa's Ancient Greek Myth and Religion course!), I'm thinking about picking up a second major in Classical Civ! My first year at W and my six weeks in Greece were certainly a little different than your time will be, due to the pandemic, but I still fell absolutely in love with both places, and I'm sure you will too! I can't wait to get to know you all and support you through what I think will be an incredible experience, but for now, I'd like to share some of my favorite places with you. While you're in Athens, make sure to grab ice cream at Maraboo on Archelaou Street, watch the sunset from the top of Lycabettus Hill (or the top of the Panathenaic Stadium!), and grab coffee at the café on the steps at Plaka – it has an ADORABLE rooftop balcony!! And when you're at Wellesley, come find me and I'll take ya to Tupelo Point! See ya soon!
