    Justin Mattingly

    Class of 2017


    Justin has been able to pursue his two passions, journalism and politics, as a student at Syracuse University. A dual major in Political Science and Newspaper & Online Journalism, Justin is the Editor in Chief of The Daily Orange and has reported on the University’s lobbying activities and political contributions. Upon graduation, he hopes to work as a news reporter at a metropolitan newspaper and eventually, to “hold officials accountable” by reporting in the nation’s capital. 

•  Any student can declare a minor.  Students who have completed one PSC course (with a C- or better) can declare a major in Political Science.
•  Please see Candy Brooks in 100 Eggers Hall to fill out the necessary paperwork to declare a major or minor. No appointment is necessary.
