(Political) Movers & Shakers
Jones is very active in Democratic politics, and would like to build a career working in politics after attending law school. From a young age, his mother and father taught Jones to engage with politics. "As a kid, I would pretend to be John McLaughlin from The McLaughlin Group."
"I really enjoy Dr. Salih’s classes. They are very government-minded, which is interesting to me, since I would eventually like to work for a senator or congressman. I also learned a lot in the New Testament class I took from Kendra Irons [visiting assistant professor of religion]. She helped me learn more than just the facts – we learned about the social and political dynamics of the era the New Testament was written in."
Why Smaller is Smarter
Jones has been able to be active in a number of organizations around campus, including Student Government, and he says there are lots of opportunities to get connected at Wesleyan – or to explore. "I’d like to maybe study abroad sometime in the future."

“My favorite book is Up From Slavery by Booker T. Washington. That book is just really inspiring. I also like True Compass by Ted Kennedy. Biographies are interesting to me because they show what a person has done with their life – what worked for them, what didn’t work for them."
