Political Science Alumni Spotlight: Tom Andriko

Class of 2008...

"The Political Science Department at the University of Akron helped me become prepared for my career in law enforcement. I started my college career learning the basic principles of the United States government, and by the end of college, I was learning the motivations, strategies, and tactics used by international and domestic terrorists.  The Political Science Department has many great professors who are willing to go out of their way to help their students succeed.  My experience at UA was fun, rewarding, and memorable."

Tom Andriko graduated from The University of Akron in December 2008 with a Bachelor of Science degree in Political Science/ Criminal Justice.  In January 2009 Tom was hired by the United States Capitol Police in Washington, D.C. where he serves as a federal police officer.
