What was the best part about being a POLS major? Political Science most certainly contributed to the best moments of my college career. The professors within the department were challenging and passionate. More than solely thought-provoking; each course, event, and debate associated with the Political Science department invoked a mindful form of caring for each topic that was intellectually discussed and taught. Professors like Siver, Haeg, and Prevost were always inspiring and auspicious. The best part about the major was that I never stopped learning and I was encouraged to continue.
Matt Reubendale. I'm an Account Manager for Esri which is the leading Location Analytics software developer. Organizations use our technology to create geographic understanding of disparate data. More simply put, our technology is the most advanced mapping platform available and it is used by professionals and anyone that isn't using Google (which is way more people than you think). My role at Esri is taking that technology and helping retail organizations figure out how to utilize it to their advantage. Essentially I get to meet with retailers and help them think about how maps can help them better understand and serve their customers. It's a pretty awesome job.

I met my wife, Lexie, in medical school and we completed our residency together in OB/GYN. She is currently a fellow in Gynecologic Oncology.
What was the best part about being a POLS major? The best part about being a political science major was the camaraderie among both students and faculty. Some of my fondest memories of my time at St. Johns were meeting professors and classmates at Brother Willie's Pub and having informal discussions about politics, pop culture, and life.
