I learned that I can do anything I set my mind to and that hard things require courage and the outcome is more satisfying than the one of easy things. - College of the Holy Cross View Entire Review
August 01, 2023 Best Summer
It was so worthwhile. I learned so much about Green culture and history and also made the most amazing connections with my classmates. - Doane University View Entire Review
I learned to be more confident in myself and more independent. I loved my program and definitely thought it was worth it. - University of Virginia View Entire Review
A new understanding of the world and a new love for Classics. The people I met, food I ate, and memories I made opened my eyes and humbled me in a way that staying in Austin could not have.

It was worthwhile to excavate and use not only my brain but also my body and common sense to work in a team of very opinionated people. - Trinity University View Entire Review
Past Review Summer In Greece

August 11, 2023 Best Summer Ever!
I learned so much about myself while being abroad. I gained so many new perspectives on things and I learned what it is like to live within a new culture. It was most definitely worthwhile. - Siena College View Entire Review

I gained a better sense of myself. - Truman State University View Entire Review

It is hard to sum up the experience I had with CYA in words.. I can honestly say that the 8+ weeks I spent in Greece have been the best weeks of my life thus far, in part thanks to CYA. I am a science major at my home university, but the two classes I took in Greece that focused on the anthropology of the Mediterranean diet and ... - University of North Carolina - Chapel Hill View Entire Review
