On the weekend of October 27th, some CYA provided the opportunity for students to join an adventure that many have dreamed of but few have had the chance to actually do – hike up Mount Olympus. After 3 hours of hiking, an overnight stay in a shelter halfway up the mountain, and another 3 hours of hiking the next morning, these students experienced the famed home of the ancient Greek gods firsthand.
We are pleased to invite you to the lecture ‘Ancient Greece and the Perils of the Twenty-first Century: the Importance of Limit’ by Richard Seaford, Professor Emeritus of Classics and Ancient History, University of Exeter. Response by Spyridon Rangos, Professor of Ancient Literature, Department of Philology, University of Patras. This public lecture will take place on Tuesday 24 September at 7.30 p.m. (Daphne & Hatsopoulos Hall, 5 Plateia Stadiou, Kallimarmaro). A reception will follow.
Over the next couple of months, CYA will be on the road visiting more than 85 Colleges and Study Abroad Fairs across the U.S. to spread the word about the transformative experience of studying abroad in Greece!
During this fair season, the CYA team has many valuable allies; our passionate alumni who share their personal stories and help us engage with partners and recruit future students.
We are also very happy to welcome three new members to the CYA team, who will be on the road over the next two months proudly representing our school: Rachael Bittick (Fall ’17), Cara Johnson (Fall ’17), and Emily Parker (Fall ’17):
‘Anscombe at 100: on Action and Living Well’ International Conference, organized by CYA-College Year in Athens and ACPA-American Catholic Philosophical Association and , took place in Athens on 15-16 June.
On the occasion of the one-hundredth anniversary of the birth of Elizabeth Anscombe, one of the most significant philosophers of the twentieth century, an international group of scholars presented papers that investigated how Anscombe understands the differences and connections between theorizing about human action and theorizing about ethics or living well.
Like every year, CYA participated in the Annual NAFSA 2019 Conference & Expo which took place at the end of May, in Washington, D.C.
CYA President Alexis Phylactopoulos and CYA administrators from Athens and the North American office had the opportunity to meet with study-abroad partners and colleagues, while also exploring new potential collaborations.
