May 2018: Senior to pursue masters in political campaigning

Jennifer Nguyen

From: This is going to be complicated, but I was born and raised in the Bronx in New York City, and then we moved to Cumming, and then my dad decided he wanted to be a farmer. So, I ended up in Dewy Rose, Georgia: population 400.

Major: Double major in philosophy and political science.

Activities: Zeta Tau Alpha, College Republicans, Pi Sigma Alpha and GC Miracle.

Why Georgia College: When I got my acceptance letter to Georgia College, it just felt right. The distance was the best of both worlds – it was close enough to home, but far enough for me to start anew. I went with my gut and do not regret it.

Plans after graduation: I plan on attending the University of Florida to pursue a graduate degree in political campaigning.

Favorite class and why? My favorite class was “Politics According to South Park” with none other than Dr. Roger Coate. Why? You get to watch South Park! What more can I say? Also, “Southern Politics” with Dr. Keith Lee deserves my love too. Author V.O. Key will change the way you look at the South. Once you take this class, you are enlightened.

How did you change in college? I honestly didn’t know what to expect going into college, besides studying and getting good grades, because that is what my parents expected from me. I always did the things I did for others, not for me. As cliché as it sounds, it was here at Georgia College through that I found my own path and passions. Attending Georgia College was the best decision that I could have made. This little Antebellum town taught me so much about myself and the woman I will become in the very near future.

What advice would you give incoming students? Your potential is what you make of it, and you should not let anything get in the way of your successes. I am a firm believer that if you work hard, you will be successful in life.
