Campus Champion Justin Wade_19892.jpg

Campus Champion

The future leaders of America are developing now. One of them is Justin Wade. The junior political science major from Caledonia, N.Y., is busy educating his classmates about politics. “We are the future,” said Justin, the current Political Science Association president. He leads weekly student debates and encourages the campus to express their opinions on issues both foreign and domestic. Justin’s newest endeavor is spearheading recruitment on campus for the national campaign “Students for RAND,” an initiative for 2016 GOP U.S. presidential candidate Rand Paul.
