- About Plattsburgh
As an undergraduate student, Franco took lead roles in-and-out the classroom as an intern for the Aaron Woolf for Congress Campaign, a delegate for the Washington Model Organization of American State (WMOAS), and editor for Cardinal Points, SUNY Plattsburgh’s award-winning newspaper.
An integral part of the political science program is the opportunity for students to have internship experiences. While taking coursework, many students also take local internships. The District Attorney’s office, the local office of the State Attorney General, the Plattsburgh Mayor’s office, and the Clinton County Board of Elections offer regular internship opportunities, and some students have interned on local political campaigns.
Full-semester internships in New York or Washington D.C. are also available. In Albany, internships with the Assembly, the Senate, and Executive offices are available, and in Washington D.C., students’ choices have ranged from interest groups, to Capitol Hill, to the Supreme Court.
