Labor Day is just around the corner and marks the unofficial end of summer and the beginning of the Fall 2017 Academic Calendar at the University of Michigan.
Nearly 7000 new freshmen will arrive at dorms around the Ann Arbor campus to begin their future. This was following a record 11th consecutive year of applications received for the fall semester. Ann Arbor increases its population each year around this time as the nearly 50,000 undergraduate and graduate students return to campus.
Even though the University of Michigan is celebrating it’s bicentennial, it is by no means the oldest of the formal educational institutions in the world.
Many consider Greece, the very birthplace of academia (or, in Ancient Greek, Akadēmía). This Mediterranean country allows those keen to follow in the footsteps of Socrates, Plato, Aristotle, Epicurus and so many other great questioners and innovators the ability to enjoy some delicious Greek cuisine, sunny weather and lively cities while pursuing their studies.
Our local students may not enjoy the sunny weather year-round but we do have a lively city full of entertainment, museums, and restaurants. And when they need that inspirational taste of lamb or feta or baklava, they need only pop-in or order out. We’re here to serve.
