I was one of five Union students selected to participate in the 71st annual Student Conference on US Affairs, held at the West Point Military Academy. We took part in a three day conference in which we were placed on different panels and round table groups corresponding to various US affairs. I was on the Alliances and Multilateral Organizations table. We discussed various organizations and their strengths and weaknesses as well as what their implications were on the future of US affairs. At the end of this conference we presented a final paper to the rest of the conference delegates and specialists in various related fields.
