“Choosing to study Political Science at Fort Lewis has been one of the most beneficial and rewarding decisions of my life. Not only did I have the opportunity to expand my knowledge of the political realm on all levels, but immersive discussions and compelling discourse challenged me to become a better thinker, a better citizen, and better equipped to help solve the political and social problems our world faces.
