Student profile


Andrew Greaves Andrew Greaves

Government


Q: Why Connecticut College?
A: I was struck by the honor code and the accessibility of professors. When I visited as a prospective student, I sat in on Professor Larry Vogel's introductory philosophy course. Not only did he include me in the class discussion and speak to me afterwards, but he also recognized me and remembered my name when I was on campus the next fall.


Q: Why did you decide to study government?
A: I was drawn by the course offerings. Every semester I was presented with classes that fulfilled my major and allowed me to delve into nuanced topics that I had been exposed to in my introductory classes.


Q: Did you study abroad?
A: I studied in a peace and conflict program in Serbia, Bosnia and Kosovo. I liked the focused curriculum, the opportunity to learn Serbo-Croatian and the program's independent study capstone. I completed an internship in Sarajevo and did research on young Sarajevans who had been displaced during the war. Later I presented my paper at an international conference in the U.K.


Q: Did you complete an internship?
A: I interned at a refugee center in Vancouver. I developed an educational program on the repercussions of the Canadian government's new refugee policies.
