Political Science Association

Students interested in participating in politics-related activities outside the classroom can join the Political Science Association. With assistance from a faculty advisor, the Political Science Association secures funding from the Student Government Association to sponsor a number of extra-curricular events involving students and faculty.

This student-run organization participates in a wide variety of activities, including sponsoring talks, issues debates, conducting surveys, social activities involving students and faculty, and trips to Washington D.C. All are welcome to participate. The club maintains a mailbox in the department main office. If you would like more information, please contact the departmental secretary Deborah Dintino at
