Such a great panel! My question would be more geared for Benji or Jacki: What advice would you give to students who are trying to figure out how they might be able to study abroad during this time? What was it like navigating that process to get to Athens? I'm so happy to hear you all had a great experience in Athens :)
Lynn Neddo

ditto what Grace said! Wonderful testimonies. I'd like to know how your parents supported you in your decision to go to Athens in the Fall 20? What did you say to defend your position?
Shirley Parson

Did you have the full support of your home schools study abroad office? Were you required to sign additional waivers?
Grace Twardy
56:30
Such a great question, Lynn! I would be curious about that as well!

I thought they were there in the Fall 2020???

In addition to Shirley's question, this could also be a question for the students or the CYA staff - what were the conversations like with universities to get students to be able to study abroad? What were the biggest barriers, and what additional things might have been required?

We UNC Chapel Hill have students arriving this semester and we had them sign a waiver similar to what is being talked about

Thank you for sharing those perspectives, Alexia and Peggy. Very helpful to hear and I'm happy it all worked out for those students. I'm so impressed by CYA's commitment to continue to provide these opportunities, and it's been such a positive to see students in Athens during this time!
