CYA summer

"From mornings on Crete following ancient roads to afternoons spent searching for each town’s best gyros, reenactments of the Olympic Games in the famous stadium, and sunsets in Athens exploring the Acropolis, the College Year in Athens summer was one of the greatest experiences of my life. I know that the lessons I learned, the memories I made, and the people I shared them with will always stay with me. It truly was a life-changing journey and an incredible adventure." - Ioan Bolohan, CYA Summer 2013
