All Challenges Are Opportunities


By Constantine S. Sirigos


College Year in Athens (CYA) was established in 1962 as the first study-abroad program in Greece for English–speaking undergraduates and through the years it has become a valuable cultural bridge between important allies and a gateway to Greece for non-Greek and Greek-American students alike.


Alexis Phylactopoulos, President of College Year in Athens, following a distinguished diplomatic career which included service at the Greek embassy in Washington, DC, has been leading the non-profit educational institution that offers outstanding academic programs (semester, year, winter and summer), Virtual Internships, and Gap programs in Greece.
