Congress to Campus


Canford Sixth Formers studying A Level Politics took part in the 'Congress to Campus' conference at Wellington College on 7th March. Sponsored by the Eccles Centre for American Studies at the British Library, the conference gave an opportunity for pupils to meet two former members of the United States Congress, Victor Fazio and Randy Neugebauer.

There were talks from five leading academics from British universities on different aspects of US Politics, with additional comments from the two ex-Congressmen. Canfordians were able to ask both academics and Congressmen questions about the current state of US Politics.  A fascinating insight during a particularly interesting time for the US political system.  Thank you to Wellington College for organising an excellent day.
