GU Politics Trips

Each year, we organize trips to visit party conventions, caucuses, national and international elections, and more. We give students backstage access to gain valuable insights into how politics gets done. All they have to do in return is tell their story for the rest of us back on the Hilltop! Check out the videos below to learn more about how our students are experiencing politics in action. Due to travel restrictions amid COVID-19, trips are currently paused and will resume once it is safe to do so.
