OS Stories: Sam Settle and the Election Seminar
Sam Settle is a freshman political science major who wasted no time this fall getting involved with the conservative groups on campus. He campaigned for John McCain in addition to joining up with College Republicans and Young Americans for Freedom. He also seems to be the go-to conservative for Collegian reporters. (That might partially be due to the tremendous amount of letters Sam sends to the editor each week…)
From his omnipresent political buttons and outspoken manner, you might expect him to be a party-line cheerleader; yet in reality, his worldview is surprisingly nuanced. He does more than just hold beliefs– he has an understanding of the political philosophy that predicates those beliefs.
We produced a four-part video series about Sam. This third video is about Sam’s experience in a political science seminar class this fall.
