As you may know, this years Campus Challenge is well into its first week with many chapters already seeing great results.  Two chapters we would like to highlight are our BU and GWU chapters, led by Abby Fletes and Rebbeca Galanti respectively.  Both ladies have authored great blog post for their school's CSA websites that we think deserve some attention.

Abby is a senior at Boston University studying Political Science and Latin American Studies. Her blog, What does CSA mean to me? Abby Fletes' story, tells how she came to feel so passionate about millennial engagement in politics, specifically related to education reform.  After growing up in Mexico, she said, "I am very aware and appreciative of the many civil liberties that we Americans possess. And as an American citizen, I feel very strongly about exercising my right to express my opinions." 

The other blog we would like to highlight was written by Rebecca Galanti, a freshman at The George Washington University studying International Affairs and History.  Her post, Why CSA, captures the process of starting a new club in one of the most politically active schools in the country.  She touches on how students only go to hear speakers that they know they agree with, and hopes that CSA will provide a chance to break this trend.  Rebecca also describes some of the challenges she has already faced.

Both blogs are great reads that everyone should take a look at, and endorse AGE while you are on their pages!  On behalf of the national team, congratulations! Keep up the great work.
