The Society has been formed to provide a non-partisan arena for all members of the Siena College community to participate in lively and meaningful endeavors in the encompassing realm of politics. The Political Science Society sponsors several events each semester such as:
- The annual student voter registration drive. Unregistered students are able to fill out registration forms at a table stationed by the Political Science Society.
- The Political Science student and faculty socials which take place in the fall and/or the spring. This is a good chance for students to take a break with free food. Students also get a chance to interact with other Political Science majors and get to know their faculty.
- The Society issues fair trade t-shirts for Political Science Society members, Political Science majors, minors, and faculty. The shirts are also available at some events toward the end of the school year. The Political Science Society works to increase knowledge of fair trade issues on campus and partner with the Fair Trade Committee at Siena College, among other student clubs and departments.
