WASHINGTON, D.C. – U.S. Sen. Sherrod Brown (D-OH) met this week with roughly 30 college students from Walsh University, located in Stark County, as a part of the College of Social and Behavioral Sciences’ annual trip to Washington D.C. This year’s trip is organized by Professor of Government and Foreign Affairs, Dr. Carl Taylor.
“Meeting with Ohio’s young people is one of the best parts of my job. The students at Walsh University were thoughtful, inquisitive, and an example of Ohio’s bright future,” said Brown. “That’s why I will continue to fight for the resources necessary to ensure our state’s higher education is among the strongest and most affordable in the country. I hope that their visit to Washington will encourage these students to become active participants in our democracy.”
According to its website, Walsh is an independent, Catholic university with an enrollment of 3000 students from 15 states and 24 countries; features 53 undergraduate major programs; and has satellite campuses in Akron (Summit County), Medina (Medina County), Canfield (Mahoning County), and just outside of Rome, Italy.
