I hope Democrats take the threat of a coup in 2024 seriously.

There has been much commentary—and fear—that Republicans will stage a coup if a Democrat wins the 2024 election for president. Recent actions by Republicans give credibility to that possibility. While General Mark Milley has expressed the traditional hands-off policy of the military in political disputes, the Jan. 6th insurrection only lasted a number of hours. But If there is an actual coup attempt the military will act—one way or the other!

If Republicans Go Full Fascist the Military Will Determine the Outcome

This summer, we're catching up with PSA members across the organization on how Pi Sigma Alpha and political science have influenced their educational and professional life! Next up, we have Adrian Ghainda, an alumnus of Eta Alpha chapter at New Jersey City University (and current MPA candidate at New York University). In his own words:
"I chose political science as my path because I wanted to learn how to craft my political identity. I wanted to learn how to get involved in politics without having to rely on others to provide me the tools to do so. The tools I've developed along my academic career of studying political science translate to my everyday life since I work in local politics in my hometown in several capacities: as an organizer, strategist, policy researcher, and writing, and as both a former and aspiring political candidate. 
My involvement with Pi Sigma Alpha gave me opportunities to network with like-minded individuals in my field at my campus and at Pi Sigma Alpha events. Pi Sigma Alpha gave me the opportunity to present my own original research before I began to pursue it at the graduate level. My involvement in Pi Sigma Alpha helped me build the networks I needed to surround myself as I transitioned from my undergraduate career to my graduate and professional careers." 08/24/2021

Finals week is fast approaching. For those so engaged, a helpful tip is to browse through the whole exam before actually starting it. It helps get the mind in gear and actually ends up saving some time.

04/21/2021

We're getting to that time of year... buckle down and get the work done well before any due dates; try not to let the first draft and the final draft be the same draft. Same goes with presentations. Get it done and practice (not memorize) but get comfortable speaking aloud (an audience, even a virtual one, can be more nerve wracking that you may expect). Being prepared calms the jitters.
