The CYA Experience eBook

CYA Faculty Stories

CYA Students view their study abroad in Greece as a life-changing experience, one that has increased their awareness and perceptions making them better prepared to live in the global community.


In The CYA Experience eBook you will hear from some of the people that make this happen. Members of CYA Faculty talk about the way they deliver the messages originating from their academic disciplines in class and on site.

CYA has been acting as a cultural and educational bridge between North America and Greece for over half a century, and has been helping students to develop new perspectives on the world, their own countries and themselves. This is the cause to which CYA (College Year in Athens) is dedicated: making its students global citizens who understand and appreciate other cultures.

Socrates put it so well two and a half thousand years ago when he said, “I am not an Athenian or a Greek, I am a Citizen of the World”.

ALEXIS PHYLACTOPOULOS, President CYA / DIKEMES
