Hours of class each day and frenzied paper writing into the early dawn hours is practically a Notre Dame tradition during finals weeks in December and May. Less so in the middle of July, but this is exactly what senior political science major Angel Mira found himself doing this past summer.
Mira was one of just 20 students nationwide accepted into the American Political Science Association’s Ralph Bunche Summer Institute. The highly competitive program, held at Duke University, includes five weeks of intense study and research culminating in the completion of an original academic paper.
