Julie Lawton 2021 Political Science

Joining a club as soon as she arrived on campus got Julie Lawton experience on two political campaigns as well as internships in the Boston mayor’s office and the Massachusetts Women’s Political Caucus – all within a year.

I think it’s cool that I can connect my classes with what I learned in my internship.
