    Brandon's Bio:
    My major is on the left, but it’s taken me six major changes, two minor changes and three graduate-track changes to get there. I’m from a small farming town west of the Twin Cities and came to Duluth for the city and stayed for the school. I work at the Burns Wellness Center at the front desk and have pretty much the best job in the world. I like to take any opportunity thrown at me, and since coming here I’ve been thrown plenty. Life’s an adventure, and so is CSS!

Absentee all the way.

One thing we are granted upon becoming 18 is the ability to vote. Voting is an ability far too many Americans take for granted, but for me, voting absentee has been one of my most prideful moments here. Something I’ve learned about the world since living in London is that there is one thing many citizens here wish they could do. What’s that? Vote for the next President of the United States of America. Didn’t see that one coming, did ya? Nevertheless, most Europeans wish they had a say in our elections for one major reason. The United States of America holds the position of the largest country in NATO (The North Atlantic Treaty Organization). What that means to every country involved (which is essentially all of Europe) is required to go to war whenever one of its member countries does. In Lehman’s terms, every time the USA goes to war, Albania, Belgium, Bulgaria, Canada, Croatia, the Czech Republic, Denmark, Estonia, France, Germany, Greece, Hungary, Iceland, Latvia, Italy, Lithuania, Luxembourg, Netherlands, Norway, Poland, Portugal, Romania, Slovakia, Slovenia, Spain, Turkey and The United Kingdom must all involve themselves in some capacity.

We’re all part of the global community, and as global citizens, it is far too important to discount our roles as such. Vote.
