Professor Bruce Stinebrickner and President Bill Clinton
On 18 November 2011, two members of the Georgetown University Class of 1968 had a few minutes to exchange personal greetings and reminisce: former president Bill Clinton and Political Science Professor Bruce Stinebrickner. Clinton was visiting DePauw that day to give a lecture marking the 25th anniversary of the Ubben lecture series.
Clinton and Stinebrickner were classmates at Georgetown, and both later earned degrees at Yale, in law and political science, respectively. The two Hoyas kept in touch during Clinton’s years as governor of Arkansas, and in 2008 they re-connected in Iowa and later in Putnam County, Indiana, during the Hillary Clinton campaign for the Democratic presidential nomination.
Clinton was a student government leader at Georgetown, and Stinebrickner played varsity basketball and co-captained the Hoya hoopsters in his senior year. It was in those contexts, according to Stinebrickner, that the two got to know each other at Georgetown.

Many political science courses analyze the American political system, but there are also courses on political systems in other countries and regions (Europe, the Middle East, China, India and the Third World more generally), on relations among and between nations, and on issues and questions that transcend the politics of any particular place. Majors go on to successful careers in elected and appointed government positions, journalism, business, research, education, and law.
