A Very Tentative Trip Schedule for Summer 2021




KIIS Greece Program
27 June (date we leave the US--we arrive in Athens on 28 June) –
1 August (date we both leave Greece and arrive back in the US)

(A Very Tentative) Schedule

(Place name in parentheses is where we sleep; times are military time. Order of classes and times will be announced each day. Excursions, day trips, museum trips, etc., are mandatory unless indicated optional.) One of the reasons this is a very tentative schedule is because, since you all haven't signed up for classes yet, we haven't been able to figure out just yet how many hours per day the entire course schedule will take--for that, we'd need to see what courses have no students in common. Another reason is that the ferry schedules have yet to be published for next summer; the times listed here are simply ferries we have taken in the past which we think are likely to remain on the same schedule. We also can't know just yet our flight schedule.
