HCHC Hosts Fall Open House
Prospective students from as far away as California and Greece traveled to our campus on Saturday, October 14, for an Open House that allowed them to see firsthand all the things that make HCHC unique. The visitors, many of whom brought parents or friends with them, mingled informally with faculty and staff over a continental breakfast before being welcomed officially by Rev. Fr. Gregory Floor, HCHC’s Director of Admissions, Dr. Demetrios Katos, Dean of Hellenic College, and Dr. James Skedros, Dean of Holy Cross. HCHC’s President, Rev. Fr. Christopher Metropulos, also offered warm words of welcome by Skype from Greece. Fr. Gregory and Michael Kirchmaier, Director of Financial Aid, then provided an overview of the admissions process and the array of scholarship opportunities available to students enrolled here. Academic sessions with faculty members from both schools followed and gave our visitors a chance to ask questions about specific programs and offerings.
No visit to HCHC would be complete without a walking tour of our beautiful campus overlooking Boston, the highest point of which is—fittingly—Holy Cross Chapel, where the visitors were greeted by the glorious sound of Byzantine hymns chanted by current students. A panel on student life after the tour frequently elicited a different sound—of laughter, as student speakers engaged their audience with lively stories about the fun and fellowship they enjoy here and in Boston, just minutes away. The morning concluded with presentations by several students about their life-changing internship experiences locally and abroad. After lunch in the Condakes Cafeteria, all of the visitors were warmly encouraged to stay on for HCHC’s annual Fall Fest.
