Popular Thinking in Political Campaigns

Mining for professional experience and for various political answers

April 2005

At Stetson’s Model Senate, students engage in serious role-playing, with opportunities to imagine their futures into existence. I testified in support of a bill to reduce and defuse land mines, and we all learned about the big potential impacts of political decisions.

On Saturday, March 19, I took a day trip to the nation’s Capital—actually I was only there an hour, and I never really left town. I testified at a Model Senate hearing, and for a few moments, it felt a little like being in Washington.

Stetson’s Model Senate was initially formed in 1970, and is still going strong today as the oldest collegiate-level model senate in the country. For more on Paul Croce’s experience there, click here!
