Discover inspiring moments from the CYA experience
by GLYNIS BRAUN (CYA Spring 17′)
I remember that my parents were not thrilled with the idea of my sister and her new husband honeymooning in Greece in August of 2015. No less than a year later, I then told them I planned to spend a semester studying here in Athens. Their reaction was the same.
What happens when young writers visit the Acropolis? At the beginning of the month, our Summer Travel Writing course taught by Professor Romana Turina, embarked on meeting CYA Archaeology Professor Dr. Papadopoulos. The team then set off to explore the many sides of the legendary Rock!
In the fall of 1990, just a few months after their engagement, Christine and Gordon Gallagher embarked on an adventure – they left North America to study abroad in Greece, with College Year in Athens. The experience was life-changing, and they returned home with a deep love for Greece.
27 Years later, they find themselves once more in the CYA academic center, sitting in the lounge area, gazing at the captivating view of the Parthenon. They have come with their two younger sons, Noah and Gabriel, and this time they are paying a visit to a very special Athenian: Their eldest daughter, Rachel!
