    This is an awesome event and more universities need to follow in the footsteps of Carleton! It is so critical to get college-aged students involved and engaged civically. icitizen is a company that has been trying to directly engage millennials by creating a hub for civic life. You can select issues you care about, take polls where the results are sent directly to elected officials, and more. With continued advancing technology and events like this one, we’re definitely going to see a higher rate of involvement among millennials.
