On the evening of Saturday, September 23rd, a friend and I attended an event as a part of the city-wide Art Night Athens. Starting at 20:00, attendees gathered in the Megaron garden, to hear the voices of over 200 participants, as they read, sang, chanted, and embellished the words of Homer’s The Odyssey.
A CYA orientation like no other…
At CYA it is our mission to not only educate students about Greece but the world as a whole. We teach our students how to learn and how to approach and discover a site, as well as the dedication needed to progress and succeed in life, both academically and personally. In line with this mission, the first ever CYA Orientation field trip transported students to the center of the world, Delphi. The ideal starting point to start their study abroad journey and to feel inspired to branch out and discover the rest of the world.
Welcome to CYA, class of fall 2017!
It was a great first week here at CYA, as we kicked off fall semester by welcoming 110 students from over 50 schools across the U.S, all set to embark on the marvelous voyage of study abroad in Greece. This fall semester’s students are as usual a brilliant bunch of young people willing and eager to immerse themselves in one of the most exciting academic and personal experiences of a lifetime.
Exciting things happening right outside our doorstep!
Famous Greek singer/songwriter Dionysis Savvopoulos headlined an outdoor charity concert “Oloi Mazi Boroume” (All Together we Can) under the moonlight at the Panathenaic Stadium (Kallimarmaro), joined by more than 60,000 people. This musical gala was a celebration of solidarity and love promoting a campaign to gather donations of food supplies from the public for those in need.

A new addition to this year’s summer courses offered at CYA was Philosophy of Action and Knowledge, the first in our series of CYA Athens Philosophy Seminars led by Dr. Evgenia Mylonaki. This year’s APS was divided into three parts. In the first part of the seminar, students studied the works of Plato, Aristotle, Descartes, Locke, Hume, Wittgenstein, Davidson, Anscombe, and contemporary philosophers of action and knowledge.
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.
