My name is Mark Koussa Jr. and I will be an upcoming junior here at Merrimack College. I am an International Business major with a minor in the Italian language. While I have been living on campus for my past two years at Merrimack, I am actually departing for Perugia, Italy to study abroad and intern for the entirety of my junior year. By using Merrimack’s excellent abroad department, I have been given the once in a lifetime opportunity to live and learn outside of a classroom and instead experience what life is like elsewhere outside of the States. In a world that has become globally smaller, it is vital that as an International Business major we experience as many different cultures and customs as we can especially with so many options to do so in our reach at Merrimack College.
