Rasmussen College Shows Support in South Sudan

During the 2012 London Olympics Opening Ceremony in July, a few Olympians walked independent of flag or country. One of those athletes was Guor Marial, from South Sudan. According to an article in Time, Marial is a refugee from the Sudanese civil war, and he has lived in the U.S. since 2001. The Republic of South Sudan gained its independence from Sudan in July, 2011, but since Marial has been in the United States for the past 11 years, he has neither citizenship nor a passport from South Sudan. Still, he ran for his home land.
