PGC Visit With Boston’s Greek Consul General


The Pardee Graduate Council (PGC), the official graduate student organization of the Frederick S. Pardee School of Global Studies at Boston University, met with Ifigenia Kanara, the Greek Consul General in Boston, on November 16, 2016 for a wide-ranging discussion on topics including careers in diplomacy.

Over coffee, students and Kanara discussed current topics including the refugee crisis and Greek-American relations as well as Kanara’s experience as a diplomat.

The PGC’s visit with Kanara is the latest event this year in which the Pardee School graduate student community has gathered outside of the academic setting to socialize and build a graduate class identity. The PGC also hosted a Thanksgiving dinner for graduate studentshosted an election night viewing partywere welcomed back to campus in the fall with a barbecue and first-year MA students attended a September retreat aimed at fostering the Pardee School graduate student community.

The Pardee Graduate Council organizes a variety of activities to enrich students’ lives, including dinners with faculty members and social events. Each year during the Spring Semester, the Pardee Graduate Council organizes a graduate student conference, centered around a theme chosen by the students.  The conference draws graduate students from the many colleges and universities throughout the Boston area and beyond.
