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.

Exploring Athens in Class
This semester, students at College Year in Athens have gone on some amazing field-trips: from Delphi, to the Peloponnese, all the way to Crete. We’ve enjoyed tours through amazing archaeological sites and wandered through sunny beaches, rainy mountainsides and a plethora of monasteries and museums.

There is one program of study in particular that I’ve absolutely fallen in love with, that is, my Crisis and Change in Greece and Europe course.
Would you look at that. I’ve officially survived two months in Europe, which definitely deserves a fist pump to the sky because holy crap, this is my first time alone abroad for this long of a time. Props to me. Actually no, props to every single student at CYA. We are currently in midterms week and we are getting through it- happily, successfully and chaotically. So here we are. Me writing this piece because I need a little break from all the studying and writing. Side note: yes, we do get work here.
