While at Franciscan, Kevin Arkoosh, served a summer internship on Capitol Hill for U.S. Senator James E. Risch (R-ID). Today, Arkoosh works full-time for Senator Risch as a legislative assistant, tracking legislation on adoption, abortion, Native American affairs, housing, and other social issues, and fielding calls for help from citizens in his home state. While at Franciscan, Arkoosh says he benefited from his classes in political philosophy, American diplomatic history, and others, while playing rugby and serving as a residence assistant developed his leadership skills.
Arkoosh gives credit to his Franciscan rugby teammates for helping form him. “I played sports my whole life, but I was never a part of a more unique program with so many authentic Catholic men.”
