Your Impact: Going the “Extra” Mile for a Fuller SYA Experience
Extracurriculars: A Door to Independence and Trying New Things
SYA strongly believes that involvement in extracurricular activities enhances a student’s academic success and character development, while exposing them to their surrounding community. With the help of the activity coordinator at each campus, our students make local connections in pursuit of their various passions. From sports to music to community service, members of this year’s class have embarked on a variety of meaningful extracurriculars — some familiar and some brand new — that are putting their SYA experiences over the top.
Learn more about some of the programs that our students are embracing this year.

Calling all alumni with careers in international affairs in the public, private or non-profit/NGO sector!
Let us know where we can find you and be included in the December issue. Know an alum who works in one of these areas? Submit their info in case they miss seeing this!
Our student writers are busy sharing their time in France, Italy and Spain.
In "Meet Me in the Mediterranean," SYA France storyteller Olivia writes about the class trip to Marseille and how she and her friends embraced the adventure.
In "A Spontaneous Game in the Rain," SYA Spain storyteller Abby writes about how a soccer game taught her to embrace the challenges that living abroad throws at her.
In "My First Month of Learning a Romance Language," SYA Italy storyteller Tara writes about the challenges that come with living in a country with no recognition of the language, but that experiential learning is the best way to learn.
Our students have been taking class trips, working hard on their language skills and enjoying their third month abroad! Our Campus Reporters took over our Instagram!
See what Chrissy, Yunus and Rowan shared about a day in their lives abroad.
SYA guides students through a challenging curriculum focused on developing skills for successful engagement in an increasingly interdependent world. Central to the SYA experience is the adventure of understanding different languages, cultures and peoples.
