Graduation Celebration for
Senior Politics Majors
By Alice V-Z Harrison ’12
For those who don’t know, Professor of Politics and Asian Studies
Larry Schulz likes social gatherings—proving that even introverts
know how to have a good time.
On Thursday, May 5, senior politics majors (students of POL 419:
Senior Seminar in Politics) were cordially invited to be part of a
farewell gathering at the Schulz home. And, of course, no gathering
I of SAPC politics majors would be complete without professors Neal
Bushoven and Howard Reichner.
Students were treated to light refreshments, a beautiful atmosphere,
and plenty of fun conversation. Surrounding us as we ate our straw
berries and sipped our lemonade was the beautifiil herb garden that
he tends to.
Thanks fr^om us to you. Dr. Schulz!
