BYU’s Women in Politics BYUPAS chapter hosted a “Senior Spotlight Nite” last month, celebrating and honoring graduating female political science students.

Friends and peers were able to cheer on these accomplished women, network, and eat together at the end of the 2015 winter semester.

The event allowed the unique opportunity for women from all the political science emphasis to network with each other.

“The Senior Spotlight night unified women whose academic interests within the major hadn’t allowed them to meet and bond with each other since those introductory classes,” said Rachel Stone, a senior in political science.

The women were able to share various helpful tips about doing well in school, research, getting a job in their field of interest, etc. for those still in school.

“I loved hearing the same sage advice from multiple graduating women, because I knew exactly which tricks worked the best!” Stone said. “We had such a diversity of women, from the multilingual, world-traveling go-getters to the women who simply did their homework and enjoyed every minute of class.”

Although many of these accomplished seniors will be gone from BYU soon, this event only marked continued friendship and a stronger network of women in politics.

“We learned the value of any and every political science experience, because they all emerged with a unique readiness to triumph in whatever comes next,” Stone commented. “I can’t wait to keep in touch with these ladies and see where they lead.”
