Picnics and Political Science

Hey all,

Around the end of the year, a lot of departments have picnics just to get their students together and hang out for a while. On Thursday, the Political Science department had its picnic in Harvey Stone Park, which is a big gazebo just beside the golf course.

Dr. Neal, a political science professor specializing in American politics, is retiring after having been here since 1978.

The picnic was also to give him a big send off. Alumni came to celebrate his career and to tell us younglings tales about what Dr. Neal had done in the past. Though I hadn’t had a chance to have a class with Dr. Neal, he was the advisor for Harvard National Model United Nations and for Phi Alpha Delta, so I’ve interacted with him a lot out of class.

The picnic was held on a beautiful day with a lot of really good food. I enjoyed meeting my advisor Dr. Smith’s life as well as some alumni who had done Maryland Student Legislature who I could swap tales with. It was fabulous to have a chance to relax and hang out with my fellow political minded polisci majors while enjoying the weather, which for once was cooperating.
