The year was 1961. The Shirelles’ hit “Will You Love Me Tomorrow” was number one on the Billboard Hot 100, actor Michael J. Fox was born, Yuri Gagarin became the first human to journey into outer space, and Smith College launched its Junior Year Abroad Program in Hamburg.
JYA in Hamburg is celebrating its 50th anniversary this week with a three-day event in Hamburg. The celebration—scheduled for June 23-25—includes a reception, presentations by faculty, dinners, guided tours, and the opportunity to explore the city.
