Depending on their interest and initiative, students are encouraged to join activities such as the Pizza and Politics Club, Pre-Law Club, the Mock Trial Team, the Republican Club and the Democrat Club.
The SVC Mock Trial team is quickly becoming nationally recognized - it competes against and has defeated numerous nationally competitive teams. Students in the Mock Trial team enjoy the camaraderie of their peers while also gaining valuable experience for future careers in law and politics.
Politics majors may also join Pi Sigma Alpha, the National Political Science Honor Society and our Aurelius Scholars in Western Civilization. Aurelius Scholars pursue a directed core curriculum and are eligible for travel and other extracurricular activities.
Other recommended activities include attending relevant lectures and conferences sponsored by the Center for Political and Economic Thought. These lectures serve to broaden students’ understanding of current and past political controversies, and offer a great networking opportunity.
