Opportunities galore


Two Muskies on their first day of work! Brock worked at the Library of Congress in the Manuscript Division -- very cool!

Today marks my first day as a “Blogging Muskie” and I’m very excited for the opportunity to share my stories with you! When I think about everyone currently in their search for the right college, I am reminded of my senior year of high school about four years ago. If someone would have told me of the experiences I would have as a Muskie I wouldn’t have believed them. However, Muskingum has given me so many opportunities to study, explore, and experience my passion. I have been studying political science and business at Muskingum and during the past fall semester I was able to study and intern in Washington, D.C. through a partnership Muskingum has with The Ohio State University.

While I was living in D.C., I stayed in an apartment building with other college students

from across the world. The building was located about fifteen yards from the U.S. Supreme Court! My internship was in the  Speaker of the House, John Boehner’s office (at the time of my internship, he was  the minority leader). Each morning I would walk to work and pass by buildings where some of the most powerful people in the world work out of every day! My duties as an intern in the Speaker’s office included organizing mail, giving tours of the U.S. Capitol Building, answering phones, attending congressional hearings and writing reports for legislative aides, and running errands.

I only worked four days a week and every Friday we had class from about 8:30AM until 3:00PM. The class was actually a graduate level course titled, Public Policy and Management. Most Fridays our class (which included one other Muskie and about twelve OSU students) would take field trips to various agencies, non-profits, or federal buildings in the afternoon after our readings were discussed in the morning.

I hope all of the future Muskies reading this right now become hopeful and excited about what the future holds for them. While it’s cliché to say this, the possibilities truly are endless and I’m saying this from experience!

If you would like more information on the D.C. program, please leave me a comment!
