Harding University in Greece (HUG) is housed in the Artemis, a former hotel (named after a nearby ancient temple to Artemis) in the Mediterranean beach town of Porto Rafti, located just outside of Athens. Daily life at HUG looks like students enjoying meals prepared by a Greek cook before heading out to enjoy the beach, hiking “HUG Mountain,” meandering through the small town or heading into Athens. Travels take the group all over Greece to many biblical cities such as Athens, Corinth, Philippi, Thessaloniki and Berea, as well as sites important to Greek history such as Olympia, Delphi, Mycenae, Thermopylae and more. HUG students also explore Israel (Old City, Temple Mount, Western Wall, Mount of Olives), Sea of Galilee and surrounding towns, Caesarea, Bethlehem, the Dead Sea, Jericho, Egypt, Cairo, Giza pyramids, Sphinx, the Nile River and more! At the end of the semester, students have the option to travel independently across Europe before heading home! The HUG program takes place during each Spring, Summer and Fall semester and travels with a maximum of 40 students each semester.
