Last week, College Year in Athens (CYA) had the honor of being welcomed to the Consulate General of Greece in Boston by Consul General Stratos Efthymiou. Consul Efthymiou noted CYA’s important history of inspiring students and philhellenes to come to Greece for academic purposes, enriching the country’s academic and cultural landscape.
This past Sunday, during the 37th Annual Athens Marathon, over 60,00 people from around the world followed the ancient route from Marathon to the center of Athens. Many CYA students either ran or volunteered during the Marathon. Three CYAers, John Schurer, Cameron “Cammi” Whiteside, and Kaarin Pidge ran the full marathon. Callan Napier, Andrew Sharpe, Sophia Musiak, Abby Wolfe, Noah Mattapallil, Joey Simone, Alyssa Czaban, and Katherine Foster also took part in the day’s activities, running in either the 5k or 10k races. Congratulations to all who participated!
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.
