Student Speak

Rim Filali, Bs/Cas And Spa ’17 (Economics And Political Science)

 “Some classes involve community service. While others take me to Capitol Hill to see politics up close and personal. I like having the tangible skill set that (this) kind of hands-on learning and exposure gives me. Plus, anyone with a Political Science or Economics degree will end up coming to DC eventually. Being inside the beltway offers experiences within the country's three main powerhouses: the Capitol, Supreme Court, and White House. “
