All eyes were centered on this Missouri institution back on October 9 when it hosted the second U.S. presidential debate leading up to the 2016 election. But the campus is no stranger to such events. In 1992, WashU welcomed George Bush, Bill Clinton, and Ross Perot for a 90-minute presidential debate watched on television by 100 million Americans – and the school was only given one week’s notice! Luckily, the school received a heads-up nine months in advance of hosting a town hall between hopefuls Al Gore and George W. Bush in 2000. In typical WashU Bear fashion, students, faculty, and the community pulled together to get everything ready by the time cameras needed to roll. And 250 fortunate students received the chance of a lifetime – being part of the audience inside the debate hall.

Even in non-election years, WashU remains an exciting place for those interested in political science. Though especially strong in political theory and methods, the school encourages students to find their own niche within the field. The result? Students who produce senior theses with titles such as Influencing the Influencers: Does Funding from Foreign Governments Affect American Think Tank Research? and Are Sex Scandals Masculinizing? An Examination of the Relationship Between Gender and Political Scandals.
