Andrew was a History major with a Political Science minor. Andrew was quite the go-getter while at SFU.

Andrew completed two internships in Washington, DC, through the Washington Internship Institute. He interned for the National Federation of Federal Employees in summer 2010. He also interned for Senator Tom Harkin's Health, Education, Labor, and Pensions Committee in the Labor and Pensions Policy Office of the United States Senate in the spring 2011. Andrew is currently serving as the Political & Legislative Advocacy Coordinator at the American Federation of State, County, and Municipal Employees in Cincinnati, OH.
The best feature of my education has been actually getting involved in student government. There is no better feeling than seeing students happy when you announce different proposals you are pushing for or have successfully completed. I would have to say my most exciting experience was actually receiving my internship in DC. Working for a labor union has been my dream as well as living in DC. It was the best summer of my life. If History or Political Science interests you, go for it! One of the biggest complaints I received from my family and friends were there are not any jobs, which is completely false. There are opportunities all across the country for you to work in fields such as law, politics, and history. There are plenty of jobs; you just have to find them.
