Past Events and Activities

The Friends of Hellenic Studies work to support the activities of the Interdisciplinary Center for Hellenic Studies as well as provide for scholarships, fellowships and study abroad activities.  What follows is a long but as yet incomplete catalogue of fundraisers, community outreach programs and events of the past decade.  Images and summaries of many of them can be found in The Hellenic Voice archive. This page will receive updates as more media and information become available and more links become active.
