In the natural and physical sciences, a vital strategy in helping students discover their purpose is to present scenarios in which they can experience the exhilaration of discovery. The moment a young researcher detects that he or she has made a contribution to the unknown—however incremental—the student becomes impassioned and will immediately begin crafting the next logical experiment.

There are so many opportunities to get involved in the Political Science department. I was able to attend the Republican Presidential Debate at the Reagan Library, where I volunteered in the spin room. It gave me the opportunity to have a firsthand look at a crucial part of a political campaign.
