Elio Vasquez: Global Opportunities Exist At Marist

“I did the Asia Study Abroad Program (ASAP), and we went to 14 countries in Asia and I took business courses that were directly correlated with the countries we were in. It’s a backpack excursion across Asia where you spend about two to three weeks in each country. I was able to go to Mount Everest, I went to the Great Wall of China, the Taj Mahal, I meditated with Buddhist monks in Thailand. It was incredible. We even stayed for two weeks in Australia.”
