“Merage has abundant opportunities to get involved with faculty, students, and professionals, but my favorite memory was the Merage International Residency Trip to Switzerland. During this trip, I met and developed relationships with new students, and the camaraderie that was created on that trip was something I will never forget. Additionally, we had the opportunity to see beautiful scenery, learn about the niche culture of Switzerland's hospitality industry, and get hands-on learning experiences with faculty and industry leaders.”Learn More About Student Experiences
