On the third floor of CYA, Tucked away in the library, is one of our best-kept secrets, Georgia Katsarou, our Academic Librarian. Since joining CYA in 2006, she has been the key person faculty and students go to for her expertise. Georgia is a goldmine of useful information regarding academic research and study. Born and raised in Athens, Georgia received her Bachelor’s Degree in Library Studies at the Technological Educational Institute of Athens, and her Master’s in Information and Library Studies at the University of Aberystwyth. She lives in Athens with her husband and their two children Marina aged 7 and Nikolas aged 4. In her spare time Georgia enjoys fiction and reading stories aloud to her children, but her unique talent is to create beautifully intricate embroideries that bring to life the beauty of the things that inspire her.
Why stay in the classroom when surrounded by a city buzzing with political activity?Earlier this semester Professor Aganidis (Crisis and Recovery in Greece and Europe) took his class for a visit to the Hellenic Federation of Enterprises (SEV). The federation provides responsible and independent representation of private economy – The place to be if you want to get an insider’s view on what the private sector does to accomplish their goals: to turn Greece into a productive, outward-looking and competitive economy.
We are pleased to host the lecture by Thomas W. Gallant, Professor of Modern Greek History and Archaeology at the University of California, CYA Alumnus (’76) and member of our Board of Advisors : Murder on Black Mountain: Love and Death on a Nineteenth Century Greek Island on Monday 13 March at 7:00 p.m.

A366 Ancient Greek Architecture from the Archaic to the Roman Times as Reflected in the Monuments of Athens
I thought of asking students to write an essay on classical architecture before midterm. The topic would be free, the important thing would be the students to be interested in the topic they would choose to deal with. These essays allowed me to see through their personality, background and potential of each student. And they have been very helpful for tailoring accordingly my teaching in the second part of the semester. It seems that this system worked in some ways and I am happy to say that I have had the pleasure of seeing a number of my CYA students following relevant career paths , in the end.
