Derek Draplin joins The College Conservative from the University of Michigan-Ann Arbor, where he is majoring in political science. At Michigan, Derek enjoys frustrating progressives all across the liberal stronghold known as a campus and belting out “Hail to the Victors” every Saturday of football season. Born in Detroit, Michigan and raised in the suburbs, Derek was exposed to liberal ideologies and the indoctrination that is commonplace in the mitten state as set forth by its auto-union stalwarts. Recognizing these biases, Derek found refuge in the writings of conservative scholars, embraced their beliefs, and never looked back. In his spare time, Derek enjoys reading the works of Russell Kirk and C.S. Lewis, pondering on the problems of our day, and spending time with his family and friends. Following graduation, Derek hopes to attend law school and become a speechwriter. In addition to writing with TCC, Derek is an ISI Honors Fellow and serves as editor-in-chief and publisher of The Michigan Review. Follow Derek on Twitter @DDraps24
