Students from ONU are attending the Republican and Democratic conventions and will participate in The Washington Center’s Democratic and Republican National Convention Academic Seminars. Students participating in the seminar will spend the first week of the program learning the history of political campaigns, convention planning and procedures, and the role of the media. The second half of the program will be spent at the convention, participating in fieldwork assignments and attending convention receptions and rallies.
Eight of the ONU students will attend The Washington Center’s Republican National Convention Seminar in Tampa Bay, Fla., beginning on Aug. 18, and two ONU students will participate in the Democratic National Convention Seminar in Charlotte, N.C., which commences on Aug. 25. The ONU students will join more than 250 students from across the country to attend guest lectures from prominent political leaders and volunteer on-site at the convention grounds. Read more.
