The University of Indianapolis, with its history of attracting students from around the globe to study here, has assumed ownership of a campus in Greece that has been home to many of its degree programs for the last 15 years. Developed in 1989 near Syntagma Square in Plaka, at the base of the Acropolis, and in a newer location in Tripolis, the University of Indianapolis Athens presently offers 30 undergraduate and eight graduate programs in the arts and sciences as well as business. Since 2002, the campus also has served as a Cisco Networking Academy, offering computer networking certification courses in cooperation with Cisco Systems.
The campus also sponsors Odyssey in Athens, a study-abroad program designed to provide American students with a rich cultural experience in the birthplace of Western civilization while taking accredited, upper-level courses in their chosen fields of study. Odyssey students study alongside Greek and other international students, a feature which distinguishes Odyssey in Athens from other study abroad programs and facilitates the process of cultural integration.
Odyssey in Athens is based in the facilities of the University of Indianapolis Athens in the heart of downtown—footsteps away from the Plaka, the old section of Athens at the base of the Acropolis. Two buildings house classrooms, a student center, library, computer lab, and administrative offices.
