    on small projects with specific legislative staffers and correspondents Favorite professor Dr Jeffrey Roberg is my favorite professor at Carthage and an asset to the Political Science Department He continually pushes and challenges students to perform at their highest level while encouraging involvement both in and out of the classroom Dr Roberg is very committed to both his students and advisees and develops strong relationships with them throughout their years at Carthage and for years after On many levels Dr Roberg fosters student success Favorite class I have enjoyed taking Campaigns and Elections so far this fall which offers an in depth analysis and critique of American political campaigns The class is not only relevant with the presidential election but is taught as a symposium with the Communication and Digital Media Department and the Political Science Department The junction between the departments allows students to be creative and design a mock campaign for Congress while considering real issues such as campaign finance specific election tactics and advertising which some of us might actually seek as a career path after graduation Toughest class As a freshman I struggled most with Political Theory and understanding ideals and concepts put forth by philosophers and theologians like Plato and applying their arguments to my own writing Favorite moments at Carthage I love being involved here and meeting so many great people along the way Carthage creates a lot of opportunities for leadership and through those experiences on campus I ve definitely become a stronger person over the last four years The faculty is also very welcoming and recognizes students who set goals for themselves providing support along the way Favorite spot on campus My favorite spot on campus is the basement of the library by the windows overlooking the baseball field I always joke

    My professors know what I want to do with my life a few of them even helped me figure it out A personal relationship with the faculty has also helped me gain a lot of self confidence in my work Having the respect of my teachers makes me believe that I can accomplish anything I set my mind to Intimate is the best way to describe the Carthage environment I ve had the opportunity to get to know each of my professors on a more personal level than is possible at a large school When you are close with your teachers they are able to give you advice write you letters of recommendation and more importantly understand what you want to get out of your education My professors know what I want to do with my life a few of them even helped me figure it out Favorite professor I hope this doesn t sound cliché but I love all the professors in the Poli Sci Department They all have unique qualities that complement each other and have added to my educational experience I love Professor Mast s laid back attitude that is so inviting His courses and guidance have helped to fuel my passion for the study of policymaking and environmental protection I love the crazed genius of Professor Kirkland the way he can take the most off the cuff remark at the beginning of class and turn it into a thought that makes you look at life in a completely new way I love the calm and impressive figure of Professor Roberg His mere presence makes you want to work as hard as you can There are very few men whom I respect and strive to earn the respect of more than Dr Roberg Favorite class My favorite and toughest course is definitely Senior Seminar It s ironic that the course I dreaded for three years became my favorite I knew that writing my senior thesis would be one of the most strenuous experiences of my life What I did not expect was for it to be one of the most rewarding I spent hours at a time and months on end meticulously researching and molding my thesis but I enjoyed every minute of it I not only learned a great deal about my subject but a lot about myself I will always have a beautiful bound copy of my thesis to remind me of the quality and magnitude of work I am capable of producing I will never be afraid of a class or project again Also I got very close with the other students in my Senior Seminar class We had all taken several courses with each other in the past but going through the thesis process really brought us together We knew only we could understand what we were going through and we shared little inside jokes We felt like the rock stars of the Poli Sci Department Career goal State Legislature My parents are
