“If it weren’t for Coe, I wouldn’t have been able to spend time interning in Washington or attend the U.N. externship in New York.”

Political science and philosophy major Laura Niday is the third Kohawk to observe a working group of the United Nations Commission on International Trade Law thanks to a Coe alum. She also has solidified her passion for politics by interning at the U.S. Senate during Washington, D.C., Term.
