Pre-Orientation: Campaign Bootcamp

Campaign Bootcamp, sponsored by the Institute of Politics and Public Service (GU Politics) at the McCourt School of Public Policy, will give students a behind-the-scenes look at political campaigning. 

Over the course of the one week program, students will learn about the mechanics of political campaigns, from message development and polling to managing volunteers and getting out the vote. At the end of the program, students will put their knowledge to the test by simulating a competitive political campaign and helping their candidate win!

Previous campaign or political experience is not a prerequisite to apply; just be sure to come prepared to learn about and work in the fast-paced and exhilarating world of campaigning!


The 2020 Pre-Orientation Programs application form can be accessed on HoyaLink using the link below.  The application will open on May 15, and applications will be due by 11:59pm on June 15. Students will be notified of their application decision in July. Students are encouraged to wait until a decision has been communicated before making final travel arrangements.
