CYA Athens Quest: A Photo Scavenger Hunt Spring 2013

ATHENS QUEST: A PHOTO SCAVENGER HUNT (Adapted from document put together by Ryan Zeigler, a student who was at CYA with a Greco-Roman Progam of the College of Saint Benedict-Saint John’s University, Minnesota.)

As an Orientation Week activity CYA organized a scavenger hunt to help students to get to know each other, the city of Athens and make contact with Athenians. The hunt was designed to whet their appetites for exploring on their own and discovering for themselves this ancient/modern city of contrasts and surprises. Here is a sampling of what they found.
