POLIS is the non-partisan Politics Studies Club at AQ. Students have opportunities to engage in scholastic and fun activities such as Model United Nations, Model Arab League, sponsor speakers from across the political spectrum and watch cool movies. POLIS has a tradition of sponsoring fun afternoons or evenings watching then debating the material in films such as We Were Soldiers, Dr. Strangelove, The Manchurian Candidate, Apocalypse Now, Hearts and Minds, and Schindler's List to name only a few. POLIS has hosted a Grand Rapids City Commission debate as well as a Third Congressional District debate between Representative Vern Ehlers and Tim Steele. POLIS members also look forward to the annual golf outing and barbecue at the the end of each school year and to volunteer opportunities such as the Ronald McDonald House.
