For Chris Condon ’19 and Liam Kerr ’19, politics has been a constant passion since middle school. After being politically active since the 2012 election, both saw Gettysburg as the perfect next step in reaching their goal of working on Capitol Hill after graduation.
Gettysburg is located in close proximity to Washington, D.C., Baltimore, and Philadelphia, providing students with opportunities to seek out internships and gain work experience—starting as early as their first year.
During their first semester on campus, Kerr and Condon participated in the Eisenhower Institute’s Inside Politics program, a semester-long mentoring experience both on campus and in Washington, D.C. Led by veteran political communications expert and speechwriter Kasey Pipes, the program exemplifies Gettysburg College’s dedication to experiential education and to helping students learn through doing.
