"Civics & Snacks is the best part of my week!"

                                                                                         –Alexi Stocker

A fun part of Political Union that is easy (and filling) to be a part of is our weekly, lunchtime "Civics & Snacks" program, a discussion about relevant goings on in society with a professor who is an expert in the field. Snacks, as one might guess, are provided to help stimulate discussion. Recent topics include: "Administrative Law and Civil Rights," "Keynes for Today" and "The Changing Nature of Executive Power in the American Century."

To get weekly updates of when/where Civics & Snacks is happening, send us an email and we'd love to add you to our listserv.
