Megan O'Boyle is a student in the School of Arts and Sciences majoring in Political Science and minoring in Psychology. She has spent time during the summer interning with both Congressman Frank Pallone and the Monmouth County Superior Court's Civil Division. During her time at Rutgers, she has worked with the Eagleton Institute of Politics through their Darien Civic Engagement Project. This program allows Rutgers students to personally go into local New Brunswick high school classes with the intent to foster intellectual growth and encourage civic engagement through meetings with these students. In the future, she hopes to attend law school and continue affecting change in the world around her. She looks forward to continuing this work as a part of the Lloyd C. Gardner Program this year.
