Student Testimonies

The Tocqueville Forum provides a wonderful opportunity to discuss seriously the past, present, and future of the American polity. Besides being intellectually stimulating, the Forum is a place of collegiality, of friendship. It truly is a tight-knit community inside of the Georgetown community at large.

- Mike Budzinski, COL ’14, Government and Portuguese


I am drawn to the Tocqueville Forum because it is an outlet for me to learn even more about how America came to be as it is today with people who are interested in the same ideas. Academic classes can only cover so much material. The Tocqueville Forum supplements what I learn in the classroom with applicable speakers and other forums of discussion. All of the Student Fellows participate because they want to participate, making the experience that much richer.

- Laura Higbee, COL ’15


The Tocqueville Forum has not only ignited my intellectual curiosity where the university has failed, but it has also brought me together with so many amazing and driven peers looking for something more than what they get in the classroom.
