PA and Sociology Students Among Archer Fellows

The UT Dallas Archer Fellows for Summer 2013 are heading back to Dallas after spending the summer months interning in Washington D. C. The Archer Center was established by the UT System in conjunction with Former U.S. Representative Bill Archer as a way to bring highly motivated and accomplished students to Washington, D.C. to participate in varied internships and take part in classes focusing on policy, economics, and politics.

Before leaving our nation's capital, Archer Fellow from UT Dallas' PA and Sociology program joined Dr. Don Arbuckle in the Vice President Ceremonial Office, where they posed for a picture while doing the UT Dallas Swoosh.

Esmerelda Sachez, Applied Sociology; Donald Arbuckle, PA; Laura Gorecki, PA; and Evan Carr, PA.  

The VP's Ceremonial Office is a beautifully restored room which Teddy Roosevelt inhabited  he was Secretary of the Navy. The desk pictured is the one used by Richard Nixon in his hideaway office (in a different part of the building) during Watergate.  In the top of it is a hole that housed the cord of the tape recorder that got him in so much trouble. The center drawer of the desk is autographed by every Vice President since Truman.  

We congratulate all three of our Archer Fellows and look forward to having them back on campus.
