HPJ ALUMNI VOICES: Robert Capovilla

I came to ONU as an 18-year-old kid – insecure of himself, unsure where I wanted to be in the future and, ultimately, scared about the prospect of starting a new chapter in my life. However, I quickly found a new home among the faculty and staff at ONU. Each professor I had cultivated my dreams and motivated me to excel as a person and a student. Over the next four years, I had the opportunity to participate in several political debates, serve on the ONU student senate, represent my fraternity as president, be an ROTC cadet, and move to Washington, D.C., where I interned at the John McCain election headquarters. I’m now a captain and judge advocate general in the U.S. Army. I owe much – if not all –to the experience, professionalism, dedication and kindness of the ONU faculty and staff. The Department of History, Politics and Justice changed my life for the better. I know they can do the same for you!
