Alex Lange ’13 knows a thing or two about politics. The New Hampshire native currently lives in Washington, D.C. working for the National Republican Congressional Committee (NRCC) in their digital department. He works alongside political campaigns to help grow their online fundraising and advertising, as well as educate them on the benefits of investing in digital politics. His interest in politics began while a student at the University of New Hampshire. In the fall of his first year, he joined the campus radio station and was offered an internship on Kelly Ayotte’s Senate campaign. It was this merging of passions, politics, and communications, that inspired him to (successfully) run for general manager of the station and helped him land a job at the NRCC.
Reflecting back to his time at Dublin, he remembers how much it prepared him for his job. “I would even argue that it prepared me better for professional life than college”, his words not ours! Dublin prepared Alex to work on teams and with other people. “Dublin's small school atmosphere forces you to collaborate with your peers on group projects, the athletic field...and is relentless in getting you out of your comfort zone. The benefits of this can't be overstated.” As many other alums will agree, Jan Haman, Brooks Johnson, and Eric Nemitz were some of the adults at Dublin that had a profound impact on Alex. “They are the just the tip of the iceberg when it comes to people who made me a better, stronger person.”
