History and Information on the Modern Greek Program at OSU (Part II)

Why is the Modern Greek Department important? Athena and Stavro explore in depth the history and significance of the department to the students, the Greek community and the Greek Orthodox Church (…round 2)!

As discussed in the previous broadcast, the Modern Greek Department is trying to raise $2 million in order to establish a permanent fund for the program. The founders and facilitators that initiated the program have led the way for the establishment of the department, but what is its future, and how can we secure it? Athena and Stavro will discuss the outcome of the fundraiser at the Scioto Country Club meant to promote the continuation of the Modern Greek Program. Dr. Eliseos Taiganides, Dr. Peter Hahn, and Dr. Yiorgos Anagnostou spoke about the importance of the program for the future generations of students at Ohio State.
