In an article published by the Patriot-News on March 1, Gettysburg College Democrats were mentioned for an event they recently held to promote Democratic candidates in upcoming elections.
The focus of the article was on a former Harrisburg mayor, Linda Thompson, who plans on challenging Republican Scott Perry for the 4th Congressional Seat.
From the Patriot-News:
PennLive and Roxbury News caught up with the former mayor as she was giving blank petitions to Moriah Adams and Conor Brooks, both of the Gettysburg College Democrats. Lee is a graduate of Gettysburg College and his daughter is currently a student there.
Thompson confirmed her candidacy, declining to talk issues until later in her campaign, but promising to debate.

In an article published by Politico on February 25, political science professor Shirley Anne Warshaw was quoted about the Clinton library's withholding of certain documents.
However, more than 13 months after the legal restrictions expired, there are no indications that any of the formerly restricted records are available for research.
“The obvious answer is they are trying to protect Hillary and there’s no question at all that there’s something in that … but the reality also is they don’t have the staff,” said Gettysburg College professor Shirley Warshaw, a frequent visitor to presidential libraries.
National Archives personnel have repeatedly complained that they lack the resources and personnel to complete legally required page-by-page reviews in a timely fashion. However, the formerly restricted Clinton records have already been reviewed and don’t require much new effort to prepare for release.

In an article published on February 28 by the Brooklyn Daily Eagle, junior Eric Lee was mentioned for his participation in a group of Urban Explorers. According to the article, Urban Exploration is a hobby shared by people who enjoy exploring the hidden parts of cities. Lee accompanied the group as a photographer.
From the Brooklyn Daily Eagle:
"For too many people,” says Lynch, “urban living consists of mindless travel between work, shopping and home, oblivious to the countless wonders a city offers.”
“Taking pictures justifies the experience,” says Lynch. “Places look so cool. That’s the allure of it. Without having a picture you don’t have much to remember it by.”
The trip’s conceiver, Adrian Nugent-Head, 20, a sociology major at Wesleyan University, is one of the group’s photographers. Eric Lee, 20, a health science major at Gettysburg College, is the group’s main photographer and videographer. Lastly, Eddie Owens, 20, an engineering major at Princeton University, is the group’s scout.

In a roundup of quotes regarding important political issues, the Kansas City Star quoted political science professor Shirley Ann Warshaw about the non-release of former president Bill Clinton's presidential records after a twelve year black out period.
From the Kansas City Star:
“The obvious answer is they are trying to protect Hillary, and there’s no question at all that there’s something in that … but the reality also is they don’t have the staff.” — Gettysburg College professor Shirley Warshaw, a frequent visitor to presidential libraries, on why a trove of Clinton White House records that have been processed for release remain hidden from public view.
The question is why Clinton presidential records that were to be released in January 2013 after a 12-year blackout period remain under wraps. About 33,000 pages of documents are at stake and include confidential advice given to the president and communication from then-first lady Hillary Clinton.
