Voice’s On-Campus Choices: Congressional Roll Call

Study for midterms got you down? The College Dems and Republicans bring you a bipartisan lineup of Congressmen to distract you from your Econ textbook—unless you’re a government major, in which case attending these events might actually be considered studying. Win-win.

Republicans – Schock-ingly Good Looking?

The Georgetown College Republicans are hosting U.S. Representative Aaron Schock (R—Ill.) on Wednesday, March 3 from 7:10 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. in ICC 105. Schock, at 28 years old, is the youngest member of the House of Representatives, and has been known to be mooned over by Congressional interns on both sides of the aisle. I hope someone at the event will bring Schock the tough questions, like this reporter from TMZ.

Democrats – Hoya, Hoya Saxa

Though he was not voted “the hottest freshmen Congressman” by the Huffington Post, Representative Henry Cuellar (TX-28) is a Georgetown grad (SFS’78) and holds more degrees—five—than any other congressman.  He represents a border district in Texas and will speak about the prospects of immigration reform in Congress. The event will be held Monday, March 1 in the Gervase Conference Room from 5:45 p.m. to 7:00 p.m. After 7:00 p.m, the College Dems will host a game watch for the GU/WVU basketball in the Alumni Lounge.

We’ve heard the sons of Harvard…

The 12th-ranked Crimson are fresh off a victory in their tune-up season opener vs. Canisius College. The Hoyas, who fell in a hard-fought loss to No. 7 Maryland, will be looking for a win before opening up Big-East Conference play on Saturday against St. John’s. Come out and support the Hoyas!
