Congratulations Graduating Seniors!

Michael Baumann   My foremost impression of Mike is that he was always quiet in class, but if you called on him, he invariably had the answer. Mike absorbs information like a sponge and is wicked smart. He will be a great Judge Advocate General (JAG).  
Zoe Dahse   One of our most enthusiastic globalists. Zoe has a big heart and is helpful to a fault.  She never hesitates to share what she knows if she believes that it will help others.   Zoe Dahse
Andrew Flood   Andy came to class having read the assignment, ready to discuss ideas with his peers and took the views of others seriously; to me, that’s what college is supposed to be all about. Andy has a positive attitude about learning, which is half the battle in college. This trait will serve him well in law school. Andy Flood
Alyssa Gruse   In a paper Alyssa taught me about theaters and films in Saudi Arabia.  I learned that the country’s only movie theater had just opened up that year (a few years back).  This was a vivid illustration of the point of my class:  films have power…so much power that the whole country is afraid to have theaters! Alyssa Gruse
Austin Hammond  I think of Austin as one of our sweetest, salt-of-the-Earth, heart-in-the-right-place students.  I appreciated his contributions to classes and that he knows a lot about American politics. Austin has a passion for politics and is always willing to try on new ideas. His gentle, good nature always made him a wonderful addition to any classroom. Austin Hammond
Peter Hermann  Peter’s knowledge of politics and his infectious personality will carry him a long way. He will do well in his master of public administration program. His kind heart will make him an excellent administrator.  
Coleman Korb     I appreciated the empathy that Coleman had for his teachers. Coleman is a quick learner and can expertly navigate through complicated texts. If you have a question about international economic institutions, Coleman’s your guy! Coleman Korb
Ian McDonald   El Presidente! Ian loves to talk and debate, and that always made for a fun class. Even when his views were in the minority, he held his own and clearly enjoyed himself. Ian McDonald
Abigail Merrill  I will miss the way Abbie’s quick brain works in class discussions.  She had a way of taking a class discussion and turning it on its head with a new perspective, asking questions other students might never have considered.  It was always fun to watch the wheels turn!  
Madison Renard  It was a delight to watch Madison transform from a shy, quiet student in her first year to the confident, poised graduate she is today.  Law school is no match for her work ethic, intellect, and grace. I knew Madison would be successful the first time she walked into my office. Her intellectual demeanor always shines. Madison Renard
Dakota Swank   I very much enjoyed Dakota’s mature presence in class.  His is a great story of personal improvement across his college career; and he is our student commencement speaker, so I look forward to hearing what he has to say! Dakota is a delightful student to have in class.  Earnest, a good thinker, and gets genuinely excited about new ideas.   
Isaac Schwartz    Isaac at his best is a wonderful student and a fine thinker. He has a terrific sense of humor and confidence that will carry him a long way, not only in the study of politics but also in life. Isaac Schwartz
Ava Tryon Ava is brilliant, hard working, and kind in equal parts.  I am proud of her for her work and her accomplishments and glad to know that she will help others in her career through counseling.  We are fortunate to have had a student as sharp and gracious as Ava in our classrooms over the years.  She elevated every class discussion and challenged her classmates, and her work ethic is relentless. Ava Tryon
