This week, I met with sophomore Matthew Vasilj. He is an International Business major with a History minor. In addition to a full slate of classes, Vasilj competes in the hurdles for Saint Mary’s track team and he’s a resident adviser in Saint Edward’s Hall. He’s also a leader of the Fellowship of Christian Athletes on campus.
