The Other Side of Immigration
The Other Side of Immigration posterDepartment of Politics & International Affairs co-sponsored a screening of "The Other Side of Immigration" on October 21. The award winning film is a documentary about Mexican immigration told from the perspective of residents living in rural Mexico. Roy GerRoy Germanomano, the film director, was on hand to answer questions from the more than 150 attendees. It was an evening marked by new information and a different way of looking at the issue of immigration. Thanks to Matt Evans, PhD student, for organizing the program. The program was also sponsored by Latin American Studies and the Department of History.

Alumni Update: Bill Torrance
Bill Torrance, Alumnus
Bill Torrance graduated NAU in 2005 with dual BS degrees in Political Science and Criminal Justice. He left NAU committed to pursing a career in international affairs. Many applications later, Bill was offered a position as Foreign Affairs Officer with the Department of State. He's currently working in the American Citizen Services unit at the U.S. Embassy in Monterrey, Mexico. Looking back at his NAU education, Bill has this to say,"As a freshman, I hadn't really considered a major in political science until I took Dr. Poirier's introduction to international politics course. I was inspired to learn more, and really delved into what I was hearing. (After that) I decided to pursue a career in international affairs."
