Congratulations to Nicholas Ordieres for being selected as Public Administration and Policy MPA May Student of the Month!

Nicholas will be graduating this month from the MPA program with a specialization in Public Policy. He currently works as a Research Assistant under Dr. Lawler and Dr. Anastasopoulos. Last summer he interned at the Government Accountability Office and is expected to work there after graduating from the program.

Originally from Miami, he received his undergraduate degree in Political Science and Business Management from Florida State University. While in Tallahassee he interned and worked at the Florida House and Senate. Some of his hobbies include playing video games, reading, Model United Nations style debate, talking to faculty about that day’s newest ideas after class, participating in International Coffee Hour at Memorial Hall on Fridays, and spending time with his friends.

Congratulations Nicholas! We are looking forward to celebrating graduation with you next week and then following your career to see what other interesting things you do after you move beyond the MPA program!
