Today at my internship with the Indiana Democratic Party, we had a luncheon with donors to the party. It was great seeing the political process come to life with representatives from around the state. There were about 30 attendees and Senator Joe Donnelly was the guest speaker.
After we spoke we ate dessert and went back to our office. There I was able to deftly nab a photo with the Senator. It ended up being a fun time talking to the various guests and eating the great food! It was by far one of my favorite days at my internship. I’m definitely looking forward to the rest of my internship experience this semester. And on top of it all, I get course credit for it!

I’m a member of Butler’s College Democrats club and yesterday we met with the College Republicans and had a Civil Engagement Forum in Irwin Library on campus. It was even better because Senator Lugar came and spoke at the gathering. His speech touched on a variety of topics, starting with his early political career to his current clash with the Tea Party. At the end there was a Q&A session where students could ask him questions.
At the end of the meeting everyone was invited to come and meet the senator. I got to shake his hand and I even got to talk to him about how we have the same birthday! It was definitely nice to see one of our nation’s lawmakers take time to come to our campus and talk to students.
