Summer session I is in full swing at CYA and the students of our “Becoming a Traveler: Writing in Greece” course are on the island of Poros. Professor Christine Harisson encourages the class to explore every aspect of life on the island, delving into the local culture and happenings.
Each semester CYA awards a travel voucher to the most active Student Ambassador to further support his/her travel and cross-cultural experiences. We are excited to announce the winner of the spring 2017 semester’s travel voucher prize: Mary Ashley Stough at Tulane University!

Starting their studies in Athens, two Spring Semester students, Kelsey and Lizzy, knew they wanted to engage with their surroundings through volunteering. CYA’s director for student affairs, Nadia Melinioti, connected Lizzy and Kelsey with Welcommon, a model community center for hosting and promoting social inclusion for refugees. The project is funded by EU through the United Nations High Commission for Refugees (UNHCR) under the “Relocation Scheme Program” delivered in the City of Athens.Throughout Spring Semester, Lizzy and Kelsey each ran her own English language class for refugees living in Athens.
