Dear Political Science Alumni,
We are back! After a year and a half of remote classes and only a handful of students and faculty on campus last year, we have returned to our three-dimensional, in-person campus experience. Students started to come back to campus in mid-August, and it was fun to see the campus increasingly bustling with returning students reuniting with friends, first-year and second-year students arriving in Foggy Bottom for the first time and long lines again at the GW Deli.
This semester, GW celebrated its bicentennial anniversary, and I enjoyed meeting our alumni and parents of current students. The celebration marked a positive step in our return to an in-person student experience. One thing that continued was the ongoing success of our students and faculty, which we detail in this newsletter.
As Bruce Dickson noted in the last newsletter, I began serving as chair on July 1. Bruce is a tough act to follow, but he left the department in good shape. We have a terrific staff to help keep things running smoothly, and we managed a smooth transition in leadership. We always enjoy hearing from alumni, and if you would like to get involved with the department by providing career advice to current students or recent graduates, please send me a note at [email protected].
