The main feature of student life at HISA is independence, where one can enjoy a creative and experiential lifestyle. For this reason, HISA's beach accommodation provides each student with their own private room, complete with a kitchenette and balcony. HISA’s faculty and staff have also arranged for an array of activities where students can socialize, make new friends, and explore personal aspirations. On an academic and artful level, HISA has set aside work stations and studio spaces where students can work in a quiet and self-reflective way.
As an integral part of the Parian community, HISA has been able to develop personal relationships with the local administration, the doctors at the town clinic, and the business community. Even though Paros island is an oasis of safety, HISA has still made student security one of our main concerns. Particular attention has been given to an in-depth orientation on manners of behavior, personal security, and relations with the community.
