When Jayla had envisioned herself studying abroad in Athens, she saw herself climbing up to the Acropolis and taking trips to different countries. She did not see herself teaching English every Wednesday for two hours to a Sudanese journalist who had written something seen as unfavorable within the country and was consequently expelled.
CYA students, Antoinelle Brackins, Chardae Walker and Alleluia Tyus captivated us with a moving rendition of ‘Mary did you know” at the Fall ’17 semester farewell dinner. Listen to their heartwarming performance.
On behalf of everyone at CYA, we wish you Happy Holidays!
As one of the only 24 hour diners in Pangrati, serving delicious crepes 24/7, Poco Poco obviously became a CYA favorite from the very beginning of the semester.
While studying for exams, writing endless essays and simply just being too lazy to grocery shop in the last two weeks of the semester, I found myself at Poco Poco quite frequently with friends as we wrapped up our study abroad trips and tried to spend as much time as possible together our final days.
CYA helps dozens of students arrange volunteer or internship experiences while they’re studying abroad in Athens. Students have done everything from volunteering in law firms to assisting beekeepers. For many years Nadia Meliniotis (Executive Director of Student Affairs) has collaborated closely with Insider Publications in Athens to offer students a journalism and writing Internship opportunity at their Athenian, English-language magazine. A great way help students learn new skills, gain experience and build networks while in Athens.
