In other words, we want to share the excitement.

The philosopher, born in 384 BC is still affecting the way we communicate and persuade each other today. Students will review the critical elements of The Rhetoric and explore the current Greek culture to prepare for an 8-day study abroad experience.
Learners will experience an extended view of the ancient origins of the study of health, fitness, and exercise that arose from the social and spiritual lives of the ancient Greeks and Romans. The outdoor gymnasia of ancient Greece were the primary training grounds for young men in the areas of physical strength; these outdoor areas were also the centers of scholarly discussion about philosophy, literature, and music.
