Adam Weiner, CCAS '11
CCAS’11 – Political Science major, Religion minor
Arlington Heights, IL
Hello, my name is Adam Weiner and I’m a senior in Columbian majoring in Political Science and minoring in Religion. I’m from a Chicago suburb but because of family connections and travel I support sports teams from Green Bay, New York, Chicago, DC and Marseille, France (where I spent my junior year). In addition to sports, I’m a devoted lover of movies, geography, The Economist, cities, Sporcle, rankings and lists. My favorite parts of the Honors program are the small, discussion-based classes, professors who both know me and care about my learning experience and the bonds I’ve formed with other Honors students. Free food is pretty nice, too.
