Model United Nations Club
Model United Nations (MUN) is the most active and intensive extracurricular activity for the government major and the International Affairs track in particular. The club attends an average of five conferences annually. After being assigned a committee and country or individual to represent, cadets involved in the program spend considerable time doing independent research and writing position papers to prepare themselves for the four-day conferences. The team travels to other campuses and argues its viewpoints in committees with students from around the country and the world. The conferences allow for the building of friendships and working relationships with students with similar interests and a chance to hone writing and speaking skills while learning about the intricacies of international politics.
