The Athenians are the official hosts and hostesses for Athens State University. Members assist with campus events such as Fiddlers Convention, Transfer Orientation Day, commencement, and career fairs. Athenians are chosen through an interview and application process in fall, and they serve through the academic year (fall and spring). They are chosen based on character, appearance, personality, and school record.
To request the Athenians to appear or assist with an event, please complete the Athenian Request Form and return to Beth Rice. All requests must be submitted at least 30 days prior to event.
