Promoting the value of volunteerism as an essential act of giving back to society, students and volunteers of CITY College supported ‘ORAMA ELPIDAS’ in its mission to raise awareness on bone marrow transplant, and attract bone marrow donors. The activity received a particularly positive response from the public of Thessaloniki. A lot of volunteers registered as bone marrow donors while many visitors of the Fair made a stop at the booth to learn more about the process of bone marrow donations as well as other ways in which they could help.

The participation of the group of our undergraduate business students (Magia Sevastopoulou, Elena Karaouza, Eugene Potzidis, Alexandra Chachamidou) was part of the Practicum component of their studies. The Practicum is an integral part of the undergraduate programmes of the Business Administration and Economics Department (BAED). Through the Practicum, final year students have the opportunity to work on real-life projects, gain experience, practice their skills and knowledge, and better understand the links between theory and practice in authentic settings.
