Hi! My name is Sam Jaros, and I am a bioinformatics and sociology student at Loyola University in Chicago, IL. I am excited to be participating in the 2018-2019 Ramonat Seminar which will be exploring how Catholics have played a role in American politics and how they continue to do so today. This topic especially interests me as a Catholic myself. As my background lies in the hard sciences rather than history, I hope to draw data-backed conclusions from verified sources. Read through my blog posts to see what I have found out so far!
