    Over 4,300 miles away from his home in Budapest, Hungary, sophomore András Breuer is off to a great start this soccer season. Despite it being his second year at Queens College, the midfielder is still adjusting to life at QC and in New York City. “If there wasn’t Google Maps I’d be lost all the time, especially in New York City,” Breuer said.
