Buenos Aires Reflection

In Argentina by Eller Student

Nick Jones, Accounting Coming into my freshman year of college, I never would’ve thought that I’d have the chance to get 15 business credits, snowboard in Patagonia and see Iguazu Falls, a natural wonder of the world.

Argentina- The Greatest Retreat

In Argentina by Eller Student

This weekend we enjoyed a major contrast to the city life of Buenos Aires.   We began with a 13+ hour journey via bus to northern Argentina.
