Based on your experience with CYA, what are some of the benefits of spending a semester or summer abroad? How has studying abroad contributed to your personal, academic, and professional development? 

Studying abroad allows you to have tangible interactions with the place, people, and theories you may study. It also gives you an introspective look at what you value and how you handle change and new experiences.

What advice do you have for prospective students who are interested in or planning to study abroad with CYA? 
What do you wish you knew before starting your study abroad experience?

Dive in! You will get much more out of your CYA experience if you aren't afraid to wander on your own, take the bus to that other part of town, or explore the underbelly of Athens.
