Learn to Lead

Arts and Sciences students stand out in student government. Issy Rushton, who double majored in criminology and psychology, got involved her freshman year and quickly grew into a leader.  As student body president her senior year, she helped lead the campus through the COVID-19 pandemic.

“I'm able to sit down with students of all different viewpoints and communicate my views in a more effective way because of Arts and Sciences classes.”

— Issy Rushton, Class of 2021
Psychology and Criminology/Criminal Justice Major
