Greece is known for its breathtaking islands, where the water is so blue that you can see straight to the bottom, no matter how deep it is. There are so many islands that it’s overwhelming to find just one to travel to. We’ve narrowed it down for you by asking CYA students, staff, and faculty what their favorite islands are!
Digital Archaeology in CYA
When exploring programs abroad, CYA initially sparked my interest due to its unique course offerings. One of the courses I was most excited about taking was Introduction to Digital Archaeology and Virtual Reality.
One of the things I love about studying at CYA is the view from the Academic Center. When you look outside the window and gaze west, you see the powerful spectacle of the Parthenon. Between you and that magnificent monument, there is a big block of green, right across the street from CYA: The Athens National Garden. Today I set off on a journey to explore this beautiful part of the city!
Dayonni Phillips participates in ‘Diversity in Anthropology’ program in Minneapolis
One of CYA’s own, Dayonni Phillips (pictured: far right), recently flew from Athens to Minneapolis for a three-day graduate diversity recruitment weekend titled ‘Diversity in Anthropology’ at the University of Minnesota. Media Lab intern, Kalei Oliver (an anthropology major like Dayonni), interviewed her to learn more about her all-expenses-paid recruitment weekend in the States.
It is the beginning of a new semester at CYA and we are curious to know what our interns think of Greece so far. Here’s a video of the 5 first things Alexandra, Kalei and Rachel noticed about their new home, complete with stunning pictures!
We are excited to welcome 3 new media lab interns for Fall ’18: Rachel Klein, Kalei Oliver and Alexandra Strong. The interns have already started working closely with the CYA media lab team, under the guidance of Communications Professor Demetris Kamaras, to create stories for the CYA social media and blog. You will have the chance to follow them closely as they share their thoughts and experiences of studying abroad in Greece.
