The Saint Mary's University College Republicans chapter received the Chapter of the Year Award April 5 at the annual Minnesota College Republican Convention in Minneapolis.
The chapter began only two years ago when a small group of students organized for the primary purpose of attending the Conservative Political Action Conference. This year the club experienced tremendous growth, more than doubling in size and increasing its communication with the state board.
They organized a variety of events this past year including Second Amendment Day. They also conducted weekly meetings and brought in a variety of speakers including gubernatorial and United States Congressional candidates.
