The Hellenic society of the LSE was developed in order to bring together students who are Greek or are interested in Greece. As a cultural society of a country with a very strong and impressive history, our aim is to organise events that reflect the history and the past of our country, as well as events regarding the contemporary financial and political issues of interest to Greece, and most notably, the Annual Hellenic Forum. We also hold a number of career events, to help students launch a successful career in London. Finally, fully believing that entertainment is more than required during our university life, we do host many social events and parties, jointly organised with other Cypriot and Hellenic Societies from London Universities.
