Students, alumni, faculty, and friends of the History & Political Science Department celebrated the end of the 2013-14 academic year with a banquet in Alumni Lounge on Saturday, May 3.

A group of 40 students, alumni, faculty, and guests attended the banquet and heard comments from guest speaker Ms. Darcy Fargo (class of '02). Fargo explained how she had put her education as a History & Government major to work in a career in journalism and public relations.

Think creatively, Fargo urged the students in attendance, about how your skills and knowledge might be applied in a variety of careers. She advised students to consider areas beyond education and law, two leading career choices for students who major in History and Political Science. (You can find Darcy Fargo's guest blog post from earlier this year HERE.)
