When I visited Augustana my senior year of high school, I was promised that Augustana would be a great hotspot for politics. There was bound to be politicians coming through the area and there was going to be media. As a senior, being promised that one day, I could be interviewed about politics was pretty exciting. Who doesn’t like being on the news?
Four year later, that promise was fulfilled. Last Wednesday the Communication Studies Department, Political Science Department, Politics Club, College Democrats and Young Republicans hosted a viewing of the first presidential debate. Since I am president of College Democrats, I was interviewed by various news outlets about my opinions on the debates. You can see me here on KWQC and here in an Augustana Video.
College Dems has been pretty fantastic this year. We have a pretty solid base of group members, which is really promising. Ever since my freshman year, our numbers have been pretty small. I’ve included some pictures of our group making a phrig for homecoming. It looks pretty sweet, if I do say so myself. I’m super happy to be a part of such an incredible group of people.
