What happens when young writers visit the Acropolis? At the beginning of the month, our Summer Travel Writing course taught by Professor Romana Turina, embarked on meeting CYA Archaeology Professor Dr. Papadopoulos. The team then set off to explore the many sides of the legendary Rock!
CYA President, Alexis Phylactopoulos, and administrators Peggy Myresiotou, Popi Triantafyllidi, Katie Sievers, and Alexia Lingaas had the joy of hosting CYA alumni, friends, and partners at a reception on May 31st. The event took place at the incredible GRAMMY Museum at L.A. Live® in conjunction with the NAFSA Annual Conference in Los Angeles. Guests enjoyed Greek food, an open bar, and the lively conversation that comes with great company and many years of shared memories.
In the fall of 1990, just a few months after their engagement, Christine and Gordon Gallagher embarked on an adventure – they left North America to study abroad in Greece, with College Year in Athens. The experience was life-changing, and they returned home with a deep love for Greece.
27 Years later, they find themselves once more in the CYA academic center, sitting in the lounge area, gazing at the captivating view of the Parthenon. They have come with their two younger sons, Noah and Gabriel, and this time they are paying a visit to a very special Athenian: Their eldest daughter, Rachel!
As a tourist in Greece, I felt like it was my duty to go to Santorini, one of the most popular, romantic, and beautiful islands on the Aegean. When deciding to study abroad in Athens, this island’s pristine blue and white aesthetic really drew me in, so for my first weekend of spring break, I ventured over to Santorini! Here is a review of some of my top favorite places and experiences:
