Alix Stanley earned her degree with a double major in political science and geography while serving on the leadership team of several campus clubs, leading campus tours, and working at the local supermarket. Along the way, she learned that her experiences in and out of the classroom were providing her with much more than a pathway to a job: Managing her time and commitments helped her become a problem-solver. Greater opportunities, whether in programs of study, engagement, or class offerings, result in greater flexibility for students like Alix as they strive to become the next generation of problem-solvers who come here to work and get their hands dirty in pursuit of their place in society. Alix ended her senior year with an honors project analyzing Middle Eastern politics and geography titled “The Israeli-Palestinian Two-State Solution: Past, Present, and Future”. The result of all her hard work is an internship in Washington, D.C., during the summer of 2018 working for U.S. Senator Ben Sasse.
