Zach Tsetsos ’12

Zach Tsetsos began building his career in government and politics long before he graduated with a degree in Political Science & International Studies.

The Oxford, Mass., native interned for Massachusetts state Sen. Richard T. Moore, D-Uxbridge, and later spent a semester in Washington, D.C., where he worked as a legislative Intern for U.S. Sen. Scott Brown.

The experience helped him recently land a position as director of Constituent and Community Relations for Moore.

“As a Political Science/International Studies student at Stonehill College, you’re not a bystander, but rather an active participant in our nation’s democratic process,” he said.

Tsetsos not only sharpened his political skills in internships on Beacon Hill, which put him in contact with the state’s top leaders, he also shaped his world view while studying abroad in Cape Town, South Africa, where he took part in a service-learning program.

“I cannot stress enough how the opportunities that Stonehill has presented me, both inside and outside of the classroom, have contributed to the person that I am today and the person I will be tomorrow,” Tsetsos said in an on-campus speaking engagement shortly before graduating. “Choosing Stonehill was one of the best decisions that I have ever made.”
