My name is Anthony Calandrillo, and I live in Lodi, NJ, right in the shadow of New York City. I am a 1994 graduate of St. Peter’s College in Jersey City having double-majored in Political Science and History, and a 2010 graduate of Norwich University in Vermont with an MA in Diplomacy. I’ve worked in many jobs since my initial graduation, from Immigration Officer, to teacher to wine salesman. I’m thrilled to finally have an opportunity to study my passion, however: international relations and foreign policy. Though I’m just beginning the IDV program, I am planning on majoring in Political Development/Security Studies, with a focus on American foreign policy in the somewhat forgotten parts of the world, and am currently working as a Research Assistant for Dr. Robert Pauly.
