Alumni and Friends

Our circle of alumni and friends is an integral part of the CYA family, forming a global network of former students and supporters dedicated to the value of study abroad. 

Whether it's organizing or attending an alumni event, serving as a contact for potential students, writing an article for The Owl, or making a much-appreciated donation of any size, there are many important ways for alumni to remain involved with current students, fellow alums, and the life of CYA. Erica Huffman is our Director of Alumni Relations. She updates alumni contact information, coordinates the class agent program and reaches out to former students.

Please contact Erica at if you would like to volunteer as a class agent, host an alumni event or submit information for an upcoming edition of the OWL. If you need to update your information please use the form below.


CYA Class Agents

CYA class agents serve as social networkers by staying in touch with their classmates. They keep them updated on the latest CYA news and developments and encourage them to participate in alumni events and support the program. Class agents communicate with their classmates most frequently by email, but sometimes in letters and phone calls. If you are interested in becoming a class agent, please contact Erica Huffman at


Keep in Touch!

Here are some easy ways to keep in touch with CYA friends and networks. Don't forget to join our Alumni Group on Facebook to keep up-to-date and get in touch with your classmates. Read, share and contribute to our stories and by all means drop by the Academic Center for a visit the next time you’re in Athens!
