When Ashley Cain enrolled in UAH, she broke with family tradition; most of her family members had attended the same, large, out-of-state university. But the Scottsboro native says she "really liked the idea of going to a school with a smaller student body." That decision has certainly paid off over the last few years. Cain, a political science major, has become an active presence on the campus, participating in several extracurricular activities. Her latest endeavor is a stint as the president of the Political Science Club, which was recently brought back into existence at UAH. Cain says the club encourages students to be more involved in the political process and helps them make informed decisions when they do get involved. Yet despite what its name may imply, it is open to all students regardless of major.
