“…helped solidify my desire to work in the political arena”

Eric Johansen, Class of 2006

Hometown: Eagle Grove, Iowa
Major: Political Science and Public Administration
Internship: Senator Chuck Grassley’s Washington D.C. Office

“While attending BVU, I had an internship in Senator Chuck Grassley’s Washington D.C. office, which helped solidify my desire to work in the political arena.  With the help of a BVU alumni, I was able to get a J-term internship with a congressional campaign my senior year.  That internship turned into my first job and lead to countless opportunities that have shaped my career in politics.”
