Student interns have a variety of responsibilities, from maintaining the social media presence for the Institute, promoting events to fellow students, helping organize events and brainstorming activities for the Institute, hosting speakers and the Advisory Board, and writing weekly op-ed columns for the Bucknellian. If you are interested in getting involved, watch for openings at the beginning of the year on The Bridge.
Meet our interns
John Angileri '20
My name is John Angileri. I’m from Detroit, MI and I’m a senior majoring in Economics and Computer Science (BA). Spring 2019 was my first semester with BIPP and I’m very excited to participate in the political discussion on campus. Among other things, I’m particularly interested in urban economic development, constitutional law, American history and the role of religion in politics. Elsewhere on campus, I am also involved in the After-School Tutoring Club, Greek life and Rugby.
Trey Gaither '21
"My name Is Trey Gaither and I’m double-majoring in economics and Africana studies. I’m originally from Baltimore, Md., but I’m lucky to call Lewisburg my home since coming to Bucknell. I chose to work for BIPP because I believe that every student deserves the opportunity to be accepted and integrated into the education and social setting they have chosen. BIPP allows for students to voice their concerns and offers many ways to medicate the wounds of inequality that affect every student on the campus, no matter their identity. We plant seeds to one day grow into beautiful trees that will provide a safe haven for students who are seeking solitude and refuge from the daunting outside world."
Fei Guo '21
I come from Beijing, China, and I am a junior majoring in Mathematical Economics. On campus, I am the PR of Chinese Students and Scholars Association and an active member of the Bucknell Consulting Group. As an intern at BIPP, I would like to use my strong quantitative background to conduct survey analyses about specific political topics and learn more insights through discussions within the group.
Annie Lindenthal '20
My name is Annie Lindenthal, and I’m from Fair Haven, NJ. I am a political science major with an Italian studies minor. In addition to my involvement in BIPP, I am also a part of the Italian Club, the Language Council, and involved in Greek life. I decided to join the BIPP survey research team because I wanted to better understand public opinion and the political climate in the U.S., and examine how citizens' interests are, or are not, represented by government officials.
Annie Maley '21
"I’m Annie Maley and I’m from Pittsburgh, Pa. I am pursuing a double major in political science and environmental studies. In addition to interning for BIPP, on campus I am also involved in Bucknell Club Field Hockey, Unite & Inspire, and Greek life. I also had the opportunity to take part in a fellowship with NextGen America focused on voter registration."
Nikki Marrone '20
"My name is Nikki Marrone. I’m from Pittsburgh, Pa., and am a pre-law political science major and classics minor. On campus I’m involved in Mock Trial, Love Your Melon, Relay for Life and BIPP. I started interning with BIPP because I wanted to learn about what influences people to form opinions on a variety of issues, whether it be as commonplace as higher education or as controversial as healthcare reform."
Harry Morris '20
"I am a politically interested economic student. I enjoy helping BIPP organize events around campus and discussing current events with everyone involved. I especially enjoy the freedom provided for our articles, which lets us be creative and free-thinking."
Nicole Reddig '22
"My name is Nicole Reddig and I'm from Lancaster, Pa. I plan on double-majoring in political science and education, and have a particular interest in education policy and advocacy. I am excited to join the BIPP team so that I can spread informed awareness about policy issues and hopefully foster some political interest among my peers in the Bucknell community."
Will Schaefer ’20
My name is Will Schaefer and I am a senior studying mechanical engineering. I recently discovered a passion for visual arts and their ability to convey messages that words sometimes fail to do. Working as the visual designer for BIPP serves both as a unique opportunity to expand my skills in visual arts and a great learning experience as I get more familiar with public policy.
