The Honors Program of Fordham College at Lincoln Center
My name is Riley Edwards (2016), originally from the small town of North Bend, Washington, but planning to stay in New York for the foreseeable future. I’m a double major in political science and physics, which is an unlikely combination made possible by the flexibility of the Honors Program and inspired in part by Dr. Morris’s first-year Honors Natural Science course. Outside of class, I’m involved in Global Outreach, the Dorothy Day Center for Service and Justice, and Campus Activities Board. I also intern at the Citizens Budget Commission, a research organization focused on government spending in New York City and State. Building on my internship experience and my passion for urban politics, social justice, and also spreadsheets, I hope to continue to work in public policy analysis after graduation and eventually earn a Master’s in Public Policy.
