“An important part of the class, Sustainable Economics, taught by Professor Papachristou, was our trip to Rome. It was enlightening to see the priorities and age-old practices of another culture, as well as their use of modern sustainable technology, such as solar energy. Each day was used to its fullest, and it was a privilege staying at the Lasallian World Headquarters.” -Robert O’Ryan
