Albert Kuhel ’18 is a Political Science major, with a minor in Middle East Studies, from New York, NY.
Prior to enrolling at Gettysburg College, Albert attended the United Nations International School in New York City. Exposure to students representing over 120 countries would help solidify his passion for international relations.
Albert spent the summer of 2016 as an intern with the Liberian Shipping and Corporate Registry (LISCR), a privately owned U.S. company representing the interests of the Liberian government. As an intern, Albert spent time at the LISCR office in Piraeus, Greece, assisting in staffing the company booth at Posidonia, a bi-annual global shipping exposition. This experience would be coupled with time spent at company headquarters in Vienna, VA. During this time, Albert would offer support to various sectors of LISCR such as business development, as well as both government and client relations. In his final week, Albert was tasked with drafting a letter to the European Commission on behalf of LISCR with regards to its ships entering EU ports.
During the fall semester of 2016, Albert studied abroad in Cairo, Egypt, where he would continue his study of International Relations, Middle East politics and security, and Arabic.
At Gettysburg, Albert is a member of Phi Gamma Delta Fraternity, and currently serves as President of the Interfraternity Council.
Albert’s involvement with the Eisenhower Institute began in 2014 when he participated in the Inside Politics program with Kasey Pipes. He has also participated in the Inside the Middle East program with Avi Melamed.
Albert plans to enter the global security and risk consulting following graduation from Gettysburg College.
