Policy Studies alumni stay in touch and committed to their alma mater. Their experiences in the program shaped their undergraduate experience and life after graduation. Many are moved to share their perspectives with future Policy Studies alumni.
the Policy Studies Program at Syracuse University as a pre-med was critical for
me to be able to understand legislation and policy making as a future medical
provider. I’ve been asked to serve as a member of the board for the Alliance
for Fertility Preservation, as I will begin my time as a physician in a few
short months. I am grateful for what the policy studies program did to prepare
me to survive medical school and beyond.

To this day, I am a most critical reader of graphs and tables, looking always for the appropriate labels and data identification drilled into me as a freshman in PAF 101.
