Alum visit

This past Tuesday, Dec. 4th, Emerson alum, Grant Denton, spent some time with the members of CPLA (Communication, Politics, and Law Association) and paid a visit to three classes: Argument & Advocacy (CC263), Presidential Politics (CC471), and Public Affairs (CC608). It was an exciting opportunity for students to meet a recent alum that is finding much success in the political world.
