Bringing It Home – The Saint Rose Blog

Author: Jacquelyn Richards

My name is Jacquelyn C. Richards and I graduated from The College of Saint Rose with a Bachelor’s in History and Political Science with a dual minor in English and Music in May 2014. While at Saint Rose, I was an ALANA Peer Leader/Mentor who helped incoming freshmen students achieve a successful academic experience in College. I also took time to work with the Undergraduate Admissions Office. In addition, I was an Executive Board Member for Pi Sigma Alpha-Political Science Society. I was also heavily involved with numerous community organizations and served as intern for the State Senate Democratic Conference, a volunteer hotline counselor for the Crime Victim and Sexual Violence Center, and volunteer for Whiskers, a local cat shelter. Currently, I am interning with Legal Services Corporation in Washington, D.C. In a year I will be pursuing a dual J.D./Master’s degree in Public Administration with an Administrative law concentration. I am not only excited to start my new internship but I am also excited to meet and learn from so many different people.

At the annual Smithsonian Folklife Festival, I found many exemplary practitioners of diverse, authentic, living traditions—both old and new. The goal of the Festival…

Rewind…Catch Up!

Hi everyone! I am so sorry this post is so late. As you can imagine I have had the busiest, most interesting, educational and hair-raising week and a half. I would have liked to post something every day but there wasn’t enough time in the day. Therefore in this post I am summarizing last week’s work week from June 23 to…

Happy Fourth of July & Hello Mr. President!

Happy July 4th, Everyone! As the three-day holiday weekend approaches, fireworks, parades, free concerts and more fill every corner of the city — and the countryside, too. I was hoping to go home and visit friends and family members but let’s be honest, Washington, DC is arguably the most patriotic place in America to celebrate Independence Day, and I wasn’t…
