CYA welcomed 106 students from 53 universities across the U.S. for Fall ‘18 semester, with a week-long orientation program full of engaging activities.
During his welcoming remarks CYA President Alexis Phylactopoulos, urged students to become engaged. “Put your fears behind and go out, force yourself to explore the unfamiliar. Try to make contact with local people… follow the local news, travel, experience Athens, get lost, take the public transport, visit places other than the tourist destinations”, he said. “Your destination is not only to finish the semester with good grades but to grow personally and to become more rounded individuals, more independent and self-reliant”.
