Homestays have been a trademark of CYA since its infancy. Thanks to the careful work of Nadia Meliniotis, our wonderful Executive Director of Student Affairs, they have been a huge success.
The homestay experience is not simply an alternative to our CYA apartments; it is an enrichment of the study abroad experience, an immersion in Greek culture and the Greek family lifestyle, and an opportunity to develop life-long relationships and a second home halfway across the world.
Each semester, Nadia matches students who have indicated an interest in the program with a host family with complementary interests, lifestyles, or hobbies. Homestay accommodations depend on availability and on student profiles.
