My Favorite Science is... Political Science?


| 1 Comment
Hey everyone!  My name is Ann Semel and I'm a junior History/Poli Sci major.  I am from Zelienople, PA which is about half an hour north of Pittsburgh.  I am a die hard Steelers fan and was in mourning for awhile when they lost the Super Bowl my freshman year.  

So why am I taking this course?  Well, like most of you, I needed a science course to fulfill my natural sciences gen ed requirement.  I was scanning through what was available on the PSU Schedule of Courses site and saw SC 200.  My three roommates are all science majors (Food Science, Animal Sciences and Biology), so they started cracking up when they heard I was taking a "science appreciation course."  So far I really like it though and will definitely be recommending it to my fellow liberal art-ists.

The reason I am not a science major is because, well, I just never really liked it as much as what I'm studying now.  I really enjoyed chemistry in high school;  I took A.P. Chem my senior year and got an A.  But I really hated biology and physics (the other two sciences my high school required students to take), and always had a real love for history.  I kind of thought that being a chem teacher might be a fun career, but I realized after taking A.P. Chem how hard it was and how I know that my real passion was in the political field.

I thought this was a good way of you saying that you do indeed like science...just not the science that most of us in this class would first think about. In addition as college students I think that we should all start to be active politically and vote this november. There is even a concert to promote voting coming to psu in the upcoming weeks. Heres a link to another blog with more info if you want to check it out.http://www.collegian.psu.edu/blogs/the_fourth_branch/2012/08/15/rock_the_vote_to_visit_penn_state_on_road_trip_2012.aspx
