American University students struggle to name U.S. senators

American University students struggle to name U.S. senators

Politically active students, prepare to cringe.

Out of the 100 U.S. senators currently serving at Capitol Hill, some American University students can’t name a single one.

When students at American were asked whether they could name a senator by Dan Joseph of MRCTV, a conservative video site, most just replied “no.” Some attempted to answer the question with approximations of names of political figures. But, when asked to name the single from “Frozen,” none had hesitations.

This is concerning for a school that sends the most interns to the White House and boasts its high level of political activity by calling its students “wonks” in Metro stations and Nationals Park.

But the question remains: Could GW do better?
