Notes from Abroad is a new feature on the Off-Campus Programs website, in which we highlight small snippets of a student’s experience. This week’s feature is from Ed Shivers ’16, a Politics studies major currently studying abroad at Lake Forest College in Beijing.
Tyler Lawrence ’11 joins Representative Robert Dold following the most dramatic shift in the balance of power in the U.S. House of Representatives in recent time. Over 80 freshman Republicans joined the 112th Congress in January 2011. Dold won the Illinois 10th District seat, which includes the City of Lake Forest, vacated by Republican Mark Kirk, who won the U.S. Senate seat held by President Obama from 2005 to 2008.
