"The Political Science program always found a way to support me in my endeavors--for example, as an Honors Program student, the Department gave me access to a wide variety of books and resources during my one-on-one tutorials with Dr. Champney. The Department also made it possible for me to accept a summer internship on Capitol Hill through its Scully Honors Program, which gave me the much-needed financial resources to participate in that experience."
