DC Semester Q and A
In front of the Capital for our tour.

Kinan J.P.F. Lagast
Spring 2012

It gave me a wonderful insight into D.C.

Brief bio:

I was born in Belgium and have maintained a strong interest in international events because of my nationality. Education disparity between the United States and many European countries shocked me in my random perusal of education articles.

Expected graduation:

May 2012

Degree objective:

International Affairs

Why I went:

My “total immersion” experience was to learn the, often foreign, language of policy.

Favorite spot to visit:

The Jefferson Memorial has one of the best views during spring when the cherry blossoms bloom.

Most memorable day:

I went for a run with a friend and when we were walking home the Hirshhorn Museum was playing a movie on the curvature of its facade. It was one of the most relaxing, cultural, and authentically spontaneous moments of my semester.

Why I'm glad I went:

It gave me a wonderful insight into how D.C. truly is a bubble and the quotidian choices affecting American lives are often overlooked.
