Ten BYU-Hawaii political science majors went on a weeklong trip to the nation’s capital, from March 22-29, with Dr. Troy Smith, Associate Professor in Political Science, to develop possible job and internship opportunities and gain a “real, practical experience in a political setting.”
For example, in Washington, D.C., the group met with Senator Jeff Flake, a Republican from Arizona, and Senator Daniel Akaka, a Democrat from Hawaii, and visited various sights. They also met Congressman Faleomavaega Eni Hunkin — a BYU-Hawaii alumnus who represents American Samoa, Peter Carr of the Department of Justice, Michael Malbin of the Campaign Finance Institute, and many others.
